Inc. was founded to advance the treatment of patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Its proprietary technologies include mild®
, which offers a safe, outpatient, minimally invasive, fluoroscopically guided therapeutic LSS treatment that requires no general anesthesia, no implants, and no stitches.
LSS is primarily a degenerative, age-related narrowing of the lower spinal canal that causes symptoms of pain and numbness in the lower back, legs, or buttocks. mild® treats this condition by restoring space in the spinal canal using specialized mild® devices to remove hypertrophic ligamentum flavum through a 5.1 mm treatment portal. Clinical studies show that mild® can help LSS patients stand longer and walk farther with less pain, and no major complications related to the devices or the procedure have been reported.
Vertos Medical headquarters, physician training and device manufacturing facility is located in Aliso Viejo, CA.
