///Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) – Treatment

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is primarily a degenerative, age-related narrowing of the lower spinal canal.  Onset typically occurs after the age of 50 and these symptoms include pain and numbness in the lower back, legs or buttocks, that limit a patient’s ability to stand and walk.

mild® – Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression

Dr. Naftulin and the Northeastern Rehabilitation Associates (NERA) provide cutting edge minimally invasive procedures in addition to a multi-specialty approach to addressing lumbar spinal stenosis. Dr. Naftulin and his NERA associate, Dr. Connor, are among a select group of Interventional Pain Management Physicians who perform a minimally invasive lumbar decompression to help treat this disease.

The mild® procedure is a minimally invasive lumbar decompression in which a physician removes excess ligament through a 5.1mm portal with no incisions, sutures or overnight stays.
