Superion InterSpinous Spacer for Spinal Stenosis
The Superion InterSpinous Spacer is a FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment specifically designed to treat moderate lumbar spinal stenosis. The Superion device is a small implant that acts as an indirect decompression device. It’s placed between the spinous processes to keep the space open, relieve pressure on affected nerves, and alleviate persistent pain and discomfort associated with spinal stenosis.
Who is a Candidate for Superion InterSpinous Spacer?
This treatment is recommended for patients with moderate lumbar spinal stenosis who have not responded well to conservative treatments, and for whom a large surgical intervention is not an option. Our experienced team at SOLUTIONS Pain and Spine will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether the Superion InterSpinous Spacer treatment is right for you.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
The procedure typically takes less than an hour and can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or light sedation. Our specialist will create a small incision in your lower back to insert the Superion device between the affected vertebrae. The Superion spacer maintains the optimal spacing and motion of the vertebrae, helping to alleviate pain and discomfort.
After the procedure, most patients experience immediate relief from their symptoms and can return home the same day. Complete recovery and return to normal activities usually occur within a few weeks.
