What is the superion procedure?


The Superion procedure is a minimally invasive surgical option capable of treating mild to moderate lumbar spinal stenosis. The Superion procedure has been backed by five years of clinical data which ensures it is an effective and proven option to treat groin, leg, and butt pain symptoms.

The procedure requires no hospital time and can offer considerable pain relief for patients. During the procedure, the Superion device is implanted into the patient and serves as a decompression device, which relieves pressure on affected nerves that are irritated by walking and standing. The implant is put in place using a small tube and works to restore space between the vertebrae.

The procedure minimizes blood loss and tissue damage to promote a more comfortable and faster recovery. The Superion procedure preserves a lumbar spinal stenosis patient’s ability to maintain a full range of motion. A highly effective and convenient treatment option, the Superion offers long-lasting relief and minimizes post-procedure complications for those living with lumbar spinal stenosis.

What is a superion implant?


The Superion implant relieves pressure placed on the nerves and reduces inflammation by holding the compressed vertebrae apart. The Superion implant is available in different sizes making it suitable for the needs of the majority of lumbar spinal stenosis patients.

While other surgical procedures can compromise the range of motion in the lower back, the minimally invasive approach used to place the Superion implant preserves a full range of motion for patients in the area.

What are the benefits of this procedure?


Various treatment options are considered for lumbar spinal stenosis. When conservative treatment options have failed, invasive surgery is normally suggested. Some patients have an aversion to invasive surgery and the health care provider may consider it too aggressive, so the Superion implant affords an effective minimally invasive option for effective pain relief.

Due to the minimally invasive nature of the Superion implant procedure, the procedure will remain completely reversible after it has been performed and will require a very small incision. The outpatient procedure will require no hospitalization and the entire procedure is performed in less than 30 minutes.

In addition to convenience, the Superion implant procedure offers tremendous results with minimal side effects. Contrasted with a fushion, the Superion implant procedure preserves the motion in the lumbar spine, and it also preserves sensitive tissue in the lower back. The Superion implant relieves pressure on the nerves to ensure patients will experience rapid and significant relief of pain and lumbar spinal stenosis symptoms.

Who is a candidate?


Individuals who are suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis and haven’t had success with conservative treatment options and are reluctant for invasive surgery are excellent candidates to undergo the minimally invasive and highly effective Superion procedure.

Lumbar spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, it places pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, and produces a variety of severe side effects.

Individuals with this condition may have difficulty walking distances, experience back pain, experience weakness, and experience numbness, tingling or cramping in the legs. Additionally, those with this condition may lose sexual ability, lose sensation in the feet, and in some cases loss of bladder control.

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a condition that greatly impacts the individual suffering from its ability to go about their day-to-day life. It can be the cause of constant pain and limitation diminishing the overall quality of life for the patient.

Fast, Durable Relief for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

The Superion® system offers a safe and effective alternative compared to more invasive surgical options or Laminectomies for treating mild to moderate Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS). It is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no hospitalization. Superion® has been thoroughly proven effective and backed by five years of clinical data, to ensure it can successfully treat intermittent leg/butt/groin pain symptoms. The relief achieved with this procedure is similar to the relief experienced when leaning forward, over a shopping cart.

The Superion® device is implanted through a small tube the size of a dime to reduce tissue damage and blood loss. Once implanted, it acts as a decompression device, relieving pressure on the affected nerves which are exacerbated by standing and walking.

Superion’s® design provides optimal fit and preserves a patient’s ability to maintain motion. It minimizes post-procedure complications and provides long lasting, durable relief for LSS sufferers.
