Dr. Raymond Tatevossian implanted a Superion Interspinous Spacer on a patient with severe back and leg pain that was debilitating them from continuing daily activities. After minimal IV sedation, the patient had the Interspinous Spacer implanted, with no complications.
The Superion Interspinous Spacer is an implant that lifts and separates your vertebrae. It’s used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis. That’s a narrowing of the space around your spinal nerves in your lower back. The Superion implant makes more room for these nerves, relieving painful compression.
