Vertiflex Superion Implants
Vertiflex Superion Implant
The Vertiflex Superion implant offers patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis a minimally invasive alternative to other, more intense surgical options.
The Vertiflex Superion interspinous spacer is an FDA approved, minimally invasive device that restores the space between vertebrae. The Superion spacer is put in place using a small tube the size of a dime. This outpatient procedure minimizes tissue damage and blood loss, allowing for a faster, more comfortable recovery.
How an indirect spinal decompression works
The Superion implant works by holding the compressed vertebrae further apart, relieving the pressure placed on nerves and reducing inflammation. Available in several sizes, the implant provides an optimal fit for each patient’s anatomy. Unlike other surgical procedures, the implant preserves the range of motion in the lower back. The minimally invasive approach minimizes post-procedure complications.
