Vertiflex Treatment for Spinal Stenosis Pain

Vertiflex works by restoring the normal space between the vertebrae. This procedure is a solution for back pain patients for whom medications or injections have failed. This is mostly due to the fact it is a minimally-invasive procedure. 

Vertiflex provides patients with a clinically proven, minimally invasive solution for spinal stenosis pain. It is designed to deliver long-term relief from the leg and back pain associated with LSS. 

The Vertiflex Superion® interspinous spacer is a FDA-approved system designed to relieve back pain. Vertiflex Inc, was acquired by Boston Scientific in 2019.
