What is the MILD® Procedure?

MILD® is a secure and effective treatment option for individuals who have been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). This procedure helps patients stand longer and walk further with less pain. It is a quick, outpatient procedure that involves a tiny incision (similar in size to a baby aspirin) and does not require general anesthesia, implants, or stitches.

Most patients can go home the same day and can return to light tasks and everyday activities within a few days following the MILD® procedure. Your physician will provide you with detailed instructions on what to do after the procedure and arrange any necessary follow-up appointments or suggested rehabilitation.

The MILD® procedure offers several benefits, including:

  • No need for implants
  • Minimal incision size
  • No requirement for stitches
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Typically performed in under an hour
  • Patients can often resume light activities within days
  • No age limitations
