Sarasota Pain Relief Centers is proud to announce the mild® procedure as a treatment option for patients who suffer from Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS). The mild® procedure is cutting-edge new technology which allows more patients to seek treatment locally without the burden of having to travel.
Dr. Myrdalis Diaz-Ramirez, Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Pain Medicine Physician, is one of the first physicians to perform the mild®procedure in Sarasota County.
The mild® procedure is used to treat LSS, a condition which occurs when the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves in the lower back. LSS is more prevalent amongst the aging population who can experience thickening of ligament tissue, osteoarthritis or bulging of the discs. This can cause the narrowing of the spinal canal and contributes to the following common symptoms:
- Pain or numbness in the lower back when standing upright.
- Pain, numbness or tingling in the legs or buttocks with walking.
- Marked symptom relief when bending forward at the waist, sitting or lying down.
The mild® procedure is a minimally invasive decompression procedure which treats the underlying cause of LSS symptoms. The procedure can be performed in about an hour and most patients go home the same day. No major surgery or general anesthesia is necessary. Additionally, no stitches or implants are required.
Patients who have undergone the mild® procedure report the ability to stand longer and walk farther with significantly less pain. The procedure helps LSS patients return to daily life activities such as cooking a meal, taking a stroll in the park, or grocery shopping.
