Vertos Medical, which has developed an innovative, minimally invasive treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), will be featured in an upcoming episode of Health Heroes, airing on Fox Business on Sunday, October 27, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. EDT.

Viewers will learn about Vertos Medical’s mild® (minimally invasive lumbar decompression), a short, outpatient procedure that is performed through an incision the size of a baby aspirin and requires no general anesthesia, no implants and no stitches. mild® is a new treatment option for patients who fail conservative therapies and are unable or unwilling to undergo invasive open spine surgery. After the mild® procedure, most patients return home the same day and can resume light activity within a few days.

This episode of Health Heroes will showcase patients who have had the mild® procedure, including their pre-mild® functional limitations, their mild® procedure experiences and their post-procedure results. It will also feature physician experts to inform viewers about LSS, LSS symptoms, LSS treatment options and clinical study results on the mild® procedure. (LSS is a degenerative, age-related narrowing of the lower spinal canal that can cause symptoms of pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the lower back, legs or buttocks while walking or standing.) Clinical studies report that mild® is a safe procedure that can help LSS patients stand longer and walk farther with less pain.

“Vertos Medical is truly dedicated to creating the most minimally invasive outpatient treatment for the very common condition of LSS,” said Michele Nehls, producer for the Health Heroes series. “I’m proud to be able to educate our audience on mild® and how it is helping provide relief and improved quality of life to patients.”
