Each year, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), a common chronic pain condition, impacts over 2 million patients in the U.S.

Commonly diagnosed in patients over the age of 50, symptomatic LSS is often triggered by age-related arthritis causing a narrowing of the lower spinal canal, or lumbar area.

In children and healthy adults, our vertebral disks hold a high water ratio that helps absorb the impact of movement on our bodies. However, as we get older, our vertebrae can lose its ability to retain water. As a result, the space surrounding our vertebral column may begin to constrict and degenerate, allowing the discs between our bones to put direct pressure on our spinal cord and nerve endings.

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.
