Vertiflex® Q & A
How does the Vertiflex® procedure work?
The procedure is simple, safe, minimally invasive and uses a small implant to open space in the spinal canal. By opening the canal, the nerve constriction, associated pain and limited mobility is alleviated.
What are the benefits of Vertiflex®?
Vertiflex® is a treatment option for those suffering from chronic lumbar pain due to lumbar stenosis. It is an alternative treatment for those who have tried and failed to get relief from conservative therapies, such as physical therapy, epidural injections, radiofrequency ablation and spinal cord stimulation.
What is the aftercare following the Vertiflex® procedure?
The incision site should be kept clean and dry for the first 7-14 days. Lifting anything over 10 pounds, bending and strenuous activity should be limited for about 6 weeks.
