Could a collaborative approach help you identify 🔎 more patients who could benefit from the minimally invasive #MildProcedure?

Join @aspn_painneuro’s CME webinar, "Reviewing MRIs: A Collaborative Approach to Patient Selection" Monday, 6/21 at 8pm EDT to learn how to review MRIs for simple patient identification. An expert physician and APP panel will discuss how to match more patients with the right treatments sooner by working together. 📝 Registration is available at link in bio!

Thank you to panel members leading this CME event, including Timothy Deer, MD, Navdeep Jassal, MD, Eugene Paik, MD, Dawood Sayed, MD, Christine Christensen, NP, Ashley Comer, NP and Zohra Hussaini, ARNP.
Have you seen the NEW study results demonstrating the 5️⃣-year long-term durability of the #MildProcedure, a minimally invasive decompression procedure that addresses a major root cause of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS)? 

Published by investigators at the @clevelandclinic, the study highlights three key takeaways, including that 88% of Mild patients avoided surgical decompression for at least five years while experiencing significant symptom relief. Review additional key takeaways and access the full data at link in bio.
Mild trainers are at the forefront of advancing lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patient care. Thank you @organicstrings, @nvadvancedpain, @pain4eemd and @drweisbein for facilitating peer education that will cause real change in the care path for LSS patients to move beyond serial ESIs and improve patients’ function.

Look for the ligament, it's a common problem, even in patients with comorbidities. Remove the problem with Mild and leave nothing behind. #MildProcedure
Injections falling short? Move patients to the minimally invasive #MildProcedure. Typically performed in less than an hour, Mild offers a strong safety profile,* quick recovery time and is nationally covered by Medicare. Learn more and view data* at the link in bio.

Investigators at the @clevelandclinic recently published an independent, retrospective cohort study analyzing the long-term durability of the #MildProcedure through 5️⃣-year follow-up. The analysis demonstrates that Mild, a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), significantly decreased the need for surgical decompression at the same treatment level at 5 years.

Happy #NationalNursesDay and start of #NationalNursesWeek to the individuals who are critical for putting the "care" in healthcare. ⚕ By definition, the verb "nurse" means, "to take care of, look after or tend to." We are so grateful for your selfless dedication to patients! #MildProcedure
Advanced interventional therapies, like the #MildProcedure for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), mean there's opportunity to move beyond serial ESIs and embrace change in your practice routine. @pain4eemd shares three key steps to develop practice treatment algorithms that optimize care and outcomes at the link in bio.
Whether patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) are in early to late disease state, have stenosis at levels: L1-S1 or grade ≤ 2 spondylolisthesis, look for the ligament. 🔍  Move more LSS patients to the #MildProcedure, even those with comorbidities, when neurogenic claudication symptoms present.

Mild physician education is in full swing! One key aspect of training is educating patients about their diagnosis and moving to Mild as an early treatment option after failure of an initial ESI. 🔊 Listen as @anjumbux shares his approach to educating patients about the Mild experience.
 
Many thanks to the month's educational leaders, Drs. @anjumbux, Eugene Paik, @dr.khemlani and @dsayed123, for sharing their knowledge and helping educate their peers on the #MildProcedure, a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).

Look for the ligament, it's a common problem, even in patients with comorbidities. Remove the problem with Mild and leave nothing behind.
A six-center retrospective review found that VAS outcomes post-Mild do not vary based on previous ESI use*. It made no difference whether patients had a single injection or none versus multiple injections prior to Mild. Don't delay patient care; ➡️ #MovetoMild after an initial ESI fails.

🛑 Interrupting his duties as a bus driver, Dr. Mark Coleman's 71-year-old patient experienced limits in his day-to-day life caused by lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). His history showed symptomatic LSS signs for three years with failed ESIs, but once under the care of Dr. Coleman, he was able to find relief with the minimally invasive #MildProcedure and given the green light 🚦 to return to his daily life with no pain.
