What mild® Physicians are Saying

Connect with Us #MildProcedure

As new lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) procedures become available, practices are evolving the way they collaborate and work together to optimize patient care. The Mild Procedure’s patient selection process is quite simple, but requires imaging review, which is often not a part of Advanced Practice Providers’ (APPs) traditional education.

View our latest blog and listen to tips from leading APPs on how they quickly established comfort with imaging review in their practice, allowing them to “look for the ligament,” identify hypertrophic ligamentum flavum (HLF), and educate Mild patients independently.

Special thanks to Christine Christensen, Kelsey Kimball, Ashley Comer, and Jane Hartigan for their helpful insights.

Look for the ligament, even in patients with comorbidities! 

If MRI imaging reveals hypertrophic ligamentum flavum ≥ 2.5mm in your lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patient, they may be a candidate for the Mild Procedure. Mild is effective in treating patients with multiple stenosis types, including lateral and foraminal stenosis and has a safety profile equivalent to an ESI, but with lasting results.*

Make the #MOVE2mild early in your treatment algorithm to get your patients on the path to relief.

Thankful for time together and helping others get back to doing what they love. In this season of gratitude, Vertos Medical is especially grateful to all the healthcare professionals who continuously put their patients first and help them find relief. 

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Is this a Mild Procedure candidate?

Case History: 77 year-old female with a previous lumbar hemilaminectomy at right L4-L5 and a 5-year history of epidural steroid injections (ESIs). The patient reported back pain of a 6 out of 10 that radiated to her right hip and leg. The patient was unable to stand or walk for more than 5 minutes but found relief from sitting or forward flexion. 

Answer: Yes! The featured patient was an excellent Mild candidate who achieved significant improvement in quality of life and mobility. By her two-week follow-up, her standing time increased to 10 minutes and her pain was a 0 out of 10. By her 4-month follow-up visit, she continued to report no pain, had discontinued use of pain medications, and her standing/walking time had increased to 25 minutes.

We see you. We hear you. We’re with you.

In practices across the country, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are key players—trusted by patients and vital to the effective, efficient flow of a busy pain practice. When it comes to bringing lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients the benefits of the Mild Procedure, APPs are increasingly taking a leading role.

We recognize all that APPs do to help LSS patients find relief. We heard your needs, and that’s why we created the Vertos APP Advisory Board—a committee of dedicated professionals at all stages of their careers who are excited to help harness more resources, support and recognition for their colleagues.

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

Thank you to these outstanding physicians for their examination of treatment outcomes and showcasing how Mild patients, even with the presence of foraminal narrowing, experience significant improvement from debulking the ligament and relieving pressure on the nerves. Drs. @jassalmd, @anjumbux, Kailash Chandwani, @pain4eemd, @dr.khemlani, @nvadvancedpain, @drpryz, Shawn Puri, @paindoc13, @painkiller_photos, @dsayed123, @harrysukumaran.

Remove the problem and leave nothing behind with the Mild Procedure.

Up to 85% of spinal canal narrowing is caused by thickened ligament.* Mild removes a major root cause of lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) by debulking the hypertrophic ligamentum flavum, which restores space in the spinal canal and reduces compression of the nerves. 

The Mild Procedure does not alter major structural anatomy. Additionally, no co-occurring or future treatment options are eliminated.

Look for the ligament, it's a common problem, even in patients with comorbidities. Remove the problem with Mild and leave nothing behind.
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.

Hear Ronnie's story at the #linkinbio.
*Clinical data:
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.
