Center for Spine & Pain Medicine offers new treatment

The Center for Spine & Pain Medicine is now offering the Vertiflex Interspinous Spacer for treating pain related to lumbar spinal stenosis.

LSS is wear and tear on the lumbar spine that causes narrowing around and compression of the nerves.

The minimally invasive Vertiflex procedure involves placing a small implant that creates space in the spine so the compressed nerves have more room, thereby alleviating the pain.

“Pain resulting from spinal stenosis is a common issue we see and treat regularly at our facilities, often simply due to degenerative issues that come with aging,” says Dr. Sadiq Sohani, medical director at the center.

The FDA-approved Vertiflex Interspinous Spacer is made of titanium and is designed for an optimal fit based on each individual’s unique anatomy.

The procedure is only used after exhausting traditional or non-invasive methods of pain relief, according to a news release from CSPM.
