Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression

The minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD) procedure is indicated for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis experiencing pain and reduced mobility related to their lumbar spinal stenosis. It is an outpatient procedure performed through a hole about the size of a baby aspirin. With the assistance of imaging guidance, specialized tools remove small pieces of bone and excess ligament through the small hole. Removing these elements is meant to decompress your spinal stenosis, restore the space in your spinal canal and reduce pain and increase mobility.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
