The mild procedure can only be performed by qualified physicians who have attended training provided by Vertos Medical. Familiarity with fluoroscopic imaging techniques and expertise in the epidural space are key qualification requirements. The most common physician specialty offering the procedure is the Interventional Pain Specialist; although, other physicians can offer the procedure if they have the required skills.
Vertos has designed an in-depth physician training program in collaboration with several key physicians. The training program is a physician-led curriculum conducted at the Vertos Medical headquarters in Aliso Viejo, CA, that has the following key educational objectives:
- Understanding how the mild procedure fits within the treatment paradigm for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).
- Identifying the right patient for the mild procedure, and acquiring a comprehensive understanding of the mild procedure and clinical data.
- A comprehensive review of necessary imaging and epidurogram techniques that are key to the mild procedure.
- Demonstrating knowledge of the mild procedure through hands-on cadaveric lab practicum and physician-proctored didactics.
Attending physicians will receive a certificate of training following completion of the program.
Vertos Medical has a team dedicated to providing training classes for well-qualified physicians. Enrollment is limited. If you are interested in more information about the mild training program, please contact us.
