Superion Indirect Decompression System

Superion Indirect Decompression System Implant

Our decompression system provides patients suffering from spinal stenosis with relief.

Many patients have a hard time finding such relief due to the fact that most other treatments are invasive.

This offers a minimally invasive option for patients.

What is Spinal Stenosis?Superion Indirect Decompression System and Implant from Comprehensive Pain Management Center

Your spine is made up of a flexible column of 24 bones called vertebrae. Soft tissue “discs” are between each of the vertebrae. The vertebrae join together like links in a chain. They support your head and body while the discs act as “shock absorbers.”

Inside the spine, there is a channel called the spinal canal. This canal is surrounded by the vertebrae and protects a cylinder of nerves called the spinal cord. Spinal stenosis is the result of aging and “wear and tear” on the spine from everyday activities.

These changes cause the spinal canal to narrow which can “pinch” the nerves in the lower back and may cause pain and or nerve damage. This is called lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).

Superion Indirect Decompression System

The Superion Indirect Decompression System offers a safe and effective alternative to other more invasive surgical options, such as open surgical decompression for treating moderate Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. It is a minimally invasive procedural option while providing the patient with spinal relief. It has been thoroughly tested to ensure it can successfully treat leg pain symptoms associated with moderate spinal stenosis.

Among those patients in the clinical trial that were followed up through sixty months after surgery, almost all expressed overall satisfaction with the Superion implant.

Superion is the Appropriate First Surgical Option

The Superion Indirect Decompression System was developed for patients with moderate spinal stenosis who have tried six months of conservative care treatment without finding relief from their pain. It is also for patients whose medical history shows that Superion may be their best treatment option because traditional spinal surgery could be too demanding.

People who will benefit the most from the Superion implant are those whose symptoms are relieved when bending forward, such as when pushing a shopping cart. Leaning forward causes the spinal canal to open,which relieves pressure on the nerves. The Superion implant produces the same effect—relieving pressure on the nerves—but without leaning forward.

Superion is a small implant that is available in different sizes to best match your spinal anatomy. It is made of titanium, a material used for medical implants because it is lightweight with great strength. Titanium is biocompatible and reduces the risk of inflammation or rejection.

A Simple, Short Procedure

Placing the Superion Indirect Decompression System typically takes about thirty minutes. This procedure includes an implant through a small incision in your lower back. The procedure can be performed in either the hospital operating room or an outpatient surgical center. The procedure involves no tissue or bone damage and minimal blood.

After the procedure, you may enjoy significant reduction in leg pain within the first few days. All post-operative care instructions should be prescribed by your physician. Your doctor will also talk to you about limiting your activity levels immediately after the procedure. They’ll also explain how to increase activities as you heal. Certain risks are associated with the use of the Superion. Therefore, consult your doctor for full information regarding these risks.

Less Pain, More Movement!

If you have been living with leg pain from moderate LSS, you know the toll it can take on your day-to-day life.
