What is Superion®?
Superion® is designed to treat patients who have been diagnosed with moderate spinal stenosis, and have undergone six months of conservative treatment such as injections or physical therapy – without experiencing lasting relief. These patients may have also deemed traditional spinal surgery to be too demanding or invasive for them. Superion® is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that addresses pain, numbness, tingling and/or weakness in the back and legs. Using a small access portal – about the diameter of a dime – a tiny, H-shaped spacer is placed between two adjacent bones in the lower back; which allows patients to stand upright without pinching the nerves in the back, thereby alleviating the pain, numbness, tingling and/or weakness in the back and legs.
