Vertiflex for Spinal Stenosis


 

As people age, the size and shape of their spinal canals change. Some age-related spinal changes are so extreme as to make walking or standing up straight very difficult. In addition, there may be leg, buttock or groin pain as well as leg weakness, numbness and cramping. The condition that causes all these symptoms is known as spinal stenosis.

All or Nothing?

Until a couple of years ago, patients with spinal stenosis were faced with two polar-opposite choices: live with the condition, perhaps with some conservative care, or elect to have invasive surgery. Now there is a middle option with the Vertiflex procedure.*

Via a very small tube, Dr. Skaribas inserts and implants a device called Superion that relieves pressure on the affected nerves with an H-shaped spinal spacer. The process is minimally invasive, with little blood loss or tissue damage, rendering it a relatively simple outpatient procedure.*

Fast Recovery

With Vertiflex, patients experience rapid recuperation and no destabilization of the spine. FDA approved in 2016, so far Superion has clinically proven to be effective for up to 48 months.*
