Vertiflex- Dr. Ajakwe

Jul 21, 2020 | Blog, Pain Management

The Vertiflex Procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. The procedure uses a small, titanium alloy spacer which serves as an extension blocker designed to relieve pressure on the affected nerves, which helps minimize the effects of spinal degeneration while fully preserving the patient’s anatomy.

Dr. Ajakwe performed the Vertiflex Procedure on a patient who was suffering from pain, cramping, and numbness in the legs while walking. A few days after the procedure, the patient already reported an increase in physical function and decrease in pain and discomfort.
