Procedure Code22867
More InfoDuring this procedure your doctor will implant the superion device (a small expandable spacer) through a small incision in the lower back into the affected area of the spinal canal. When expanded, the device relieves the compression on the spine experienced by patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. The procedure takes between 30 to 45 minutes with very little recovery time. This may be the best treatment option for patients who have failed to find relief through more conservative treatment options.
