Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (MILD)

The MILD procedure is primarily used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Since MILD is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, there is minimal trauma, which means patients can expect a faster recovery compared to more invasive spine surgeries. The procedure removes pressure on the nerves by removing excess ligaments or bone tissues. This reduced nerve pressure can help significantly reduce leg, buttocks, and back pain.
