By: First Choice Neurology
How Does the Vertiflex Procedure Work?
Dr. Mesa places a small spacer inside the spine without removal of any nearby bone or tissue. Once inserted, the spacer's arms open around the spinous processes to help make proper space for the affected nerves.
The spacer preserves the space in the spine. This keeps pressure off the nerves which causes leg and back pain. This minimally invasive procedure helps treat neurogenic claudication without requiring major surgery.
Is the Vertiflex Procedure Safe and Effective?
The Vertiflex Procedure was developed with patient safety in mind. General anesthesia is not required for the procedure and is preferred among many doctors across the United States. This is an outpatient procedure, and most patients can return home the same day with minimal recovery time.
