Unlike more invasive procedures that can require a lengthy recovery, Mild patients typically resume normal activity within 24 hours with no restrictions.* 

Mild patient, Ronnie, says “By the time I walked out [after the Mild Procedure], I went home, and I could get out. The first thing I wanted to do was start doing stuff. That was a big moment in my life emotionally.”

Help more lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients make the #MOVE2mild earlier in the treatment algorithm after the first ESI fails.

With growing data supporting the Mild Procedure as first-line therapy for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS), more and more physicians and APPs are making the #MOVE2mild after the first epidural steroid injection (ESI) fails.

Hear from leading physician @drajayantonymd for his perspective on moving LSS patients to the Mild Procedure earlier in the treatment algorithm.

After witnessing the debilitating impact that lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) has on millions of patients’ quality-of-life annually, it became not just our goal, but our passion to expand the minimally invasive Mild Procedure treatment option to patients and practices nationwide. 

Many thanks to our dedicated Mild providers and Team Vertos who’ve helped patients throw out those canes and walkers, find joy again, and get back to what matters most to them - in a minimally invasive way.

Mild Procedure training in action! Team Vertos and Mild physicians have been showcasing the minimally invasive procedure for lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) at recent in-person society hosted labs throughout the U.S.

Interested in adding Mild to your practice? Train virtually 11/17 or 12/8 and learn about patient selection, imaging, clinical data, Mild instrumentation, and procedure steps.

Is this patient a Mild Procedure candidate?

Case History: 75 year-old male with a history of 3 prior spine surgeries, which included laminectomies at L4-5 and L5-S1. Noticing his lower back pain worsening and requiring more assistance with ambulation, he completed a full course of physical therapy with little improvement. He was later treated with 2 bilateral epidural steroid injections (ESIs), which offered temporary pain relief, but no functional improvement. The patient could only stand/walk for less than 10 minutes, progressed from a cane to a walker, and moved to a recliner to sleep.

Answer: Yes! The featured patient was an excellent Mild candidate who achieved significant improvement in quality of life and mobility. By his two week follow-up, the patient could stand for more than 30 minutes, resumed walking up to two miles, and threw out his cane and walker.

If you think your patient may have lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS), look for signs of the "shopping cart syndrome" to evaluate symptoms, which may include pain in the lower back, lower extremities, or buttocks that is relieved with forward flexion (like leaning on a shopping cart). These symptoms indicate your patient may be a candidate for the Mild Procedure. 

Mild is a minimally invasive lumbar decompression with a safety profile equivalent to an epidural steroid injection (ESI).* Get your patients on the path to relief by making the #MOVE2mild early in your treatment algorithm.

New #MildProcedure data was revealed at the @pacificspineandpainsociety (PSPS) 2021 Annual Conference! This real-world retrospective data confirms that lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients with foraminal narrowing can benefit from Mild and should not be excluded from treatment.

A big thank you to Drs. @nvadvancedpain, @khemlanimd, @drpryz, and Shawn Puri for their exploration of treatment outcomes for Mild patients with and without foraminal narrowing as an adjunctive spinal comorbidity. 

To learn more on why Mild should be considered a first-line therapy for LSS patients, read the full blog at the #linkinbio.
Recognizing #BackCareAwarenessWeek - Over two million lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients nationwide are diagnosed and treated annually.* Symptoms of LSS include pain, numbness, heaviness or tingling in the lower back, legs, or buttocks when standing or walking. While epidural steroid injections (ESIs) may provide short-term relief for LSS, there is a more durable, minimally invasive option available. 

With a safety profile equivalent to ESIs but with lasting results, data has shown the Mild Procedure has helped 88% of patients avoid back surgery for at least 5 years.*

#TreaterSpotlight We had the opportunity to speak with @droliviakelley at @wipm_society. 

After her initial training, Dr. Kelley collaborated with Mild experts @drweisbein and Dr. @anjumbux. With their insights and support, Dr. Kelley has quickly adopted the Mild Procedure into her treatment algorithm for lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS), offering patients a minimally invasive treatment that addresses a major root cause of their condition. If she performs an initial epidural steroid injection, it’s often for procedural planning, and then she’ll #MOVE2mild to help patients achieve lasting relief.* 

It was great to catch up with Dr. Kelley and we look forward to watching her practice flourish with Mild!

#PainAwarenessMonth gives us a great opportunity to recognize Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), a vital part of the Interventional Pain Management team. APPs work alongside physicians to evaluate, educate, and assess patients. 

For patients suffering from the debilitating pain and functional limitations of lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS), APPs are often the first clinicians to recognize patients’ LSS symptoms and talk them through their care plans. We’re grateful for all the APPs who’ve helped patients #MOVE2mild.
When conservative treatments such as physical therapy, medications, and injections for lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) are no longer effective, patients may feel that traditional surgery is their only option for finding relief. Whether patients are not a surgical candidate, unable to tolerate surgery, or even unwilling, the Mild Procedure is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment option that may help increase mobility and decrease pain.* 
 
Typically completed in less than an hour, Mild can be performed through a single, tiny incision smaller than the size of a baby aspirin (5.1 mm) using only local anesthetic and light sedation, leaving no implants behind.
 
Make sure your patients know you have more to offer than conservative care.

As the Mild Procedure for lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) becomes more widespread in clinical practice, physicians are evolving from the Standard Approach to the Streamlined Technique, a single-incision approach that increases procedural efficiency.

A recent study presented by Dr. @jassalmd and Christine Christensen, NP at #ASPN2021 demonstrates the Streamlined Technique is comparable in safety to the Standard Approach, with no increased risk of serious postoperative complications to the patient.*
