Treatment overview and more!
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.

After transitioning from a pain and spine doctor in Columbia, MD.. The intake staff member at Pain and Spine Specialist made the scheduling a breeze. They were able to get me in within a week.
They scheduled my appointment very quickly so that I could get to help that I needed immediately instead of, like most places having to wait two to three weeks to get in I called and was able to be seen the next day.
Always friendly, courteous, and efficient service. From the ladies, who work the front desk, to the nurses and the doctors. I've always had a good experience with the Harrisonburg office in Virginia.
Completely the best care you could want. The staff is so pleasant and caring, and the doctors have a true heart for healing. love being a patient here and would give 10 stars if I could & absolutely the most caring during my procedure with Dr B.
In the 3 years as a patient of Dr. Rao, it is my opinion that he is a phenomenal and extraordinary doctor. He keeps up to date with the latest treatment options and will sacrifice time, no matter how many are in the waiting room.
