St. John’s Riverside Hospital Podcast: mild® with Dr. Stephen Erosa

Source— Published November 15, 2023

In a recent podcast from St. John’s Riverside Hospital in Yonkers, New York, Dr. Stephen Erosa discusses how the mild® Procedure can help to treat patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. Dual board-certified pain physician Dr. Erosa describes how a minimally invasive lumbar decompression, or mild®, is a relatively new procedure that may help patients when more conservative treatments don’t work.

Throughout the 15-minute podcast, Dr. Erosa discusses the typical symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) including the shopping cart sign, lists both traditional and current procedures for LSS, what patients can expect during and after mild®, and the research and clinical data behind the procedure.

An excerpt from the podcast includes:

“The procedure is minimally invasive and durable without needing extensive surgical time, hospital stay, or having implantable devices. So, it really is the best next step when conservative measures have not helped and injections have stopped helping, prior to moving on to a neurosurgical or an orthopedic surgical procedure.”
