Superion™ Indirect Decompression System

If your leg and back pain are keeping you from enjoying your daily life, it’s time to learn about a clinically proven, long-term solution. There’s a simple and safe procedure that may help you get back to enjoying your day-to-day life again.

The Vertiflex™ Procedure (Superion™ Indirect Decompression System) is redefining the treatment of LSS for patients. It provides patients with a clinically proven, minimally invasive solution that is designed to deliver long-term relief from the leg and back pain associated with LSS.

Leg and Back Pain

Leg and back pain may be the result of a condition called lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). This condition can cause symptoms of pain, cramping, tingling, or weakness in one or both legs, back or buttocks. Often times, people with this condition can’t walk or stand up straight for long periods of time and may frequently need to lean forward or sit for relief.

About the Procedure

The Vertiflex™ Procedure is a simple and safe, minimally invasive procedure, clinically proven for effective long-term relief from the symptoms associated with lumbar spinal stenosis. This outpatient procedure can be done with light anesthesia or while you remain awake and has minimal recovery time. The procedure is completely reversible and doesn’t disrupt any bone or tissue, setting the standard of care for LSS for many physicians across the U.S.

How does it work?

The Vertiflex™ Procedure uses a small spacer that is placed inside the spine without damaging any nearby bone or tissue. Once inserted, the implant’s arms open around the spinous processes (the bumps you can feel in your spine) and hold the space open. This preserves the necessary space in the spine, lifting pressure off the nerves in the lower back which can result in the reduction or elimination of leg and back pain. This simple and streamlined procedure can be completed at an outpatient center.

Why Vertiflex™?

The Vertiflex™ Procedure is the only FDA approved, minimally invasive, indirect decompression device to treat lumbar spinal stenosis. It can provide a solution for the ongoing leg and back pain with minimal recovery time to help stenosis sufferers return to enjoying day-to-day life again. In addition, the Vertiflex™ Procedure offers the following benefits:

  • Clinically proven to show relief lasting for five years
  • Non-opioid solution that can help reduce pre-existing opioid use
  • No removal or disruption to any bone or tissue
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Completely reversible, leaving all treatment options available in the future
  • Low risk of infections or complications
