The Vertiflex™ Procedure†

Superion™ Indirect Decompression System

Setting the standard of care for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS)

The Vertiflex Procedure is redefining the treatment of LSS for patients. It provides patients with a clinically proven, minimally invasive solution that is designed to deliver long-term relief from the leg and back pain associated with LSS. This Level 1 evidence-based procedure is supported by data from patients who reported successful outcomes up to five years.

Clinically proven for LSS

The Vertiflex Procedure underwent one of the most rigorous studies on Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. 470 patients were enrolled in an Investigational Device Exemption or IDE trial at 29 sites with a 24-month follow-up and annually thereafter through 60 months.1

Patient access

Most patients indicated for the Vertiflex Procedure have insurance coverage through original Medicare and a growing number of private health plans.2,3 Discover ways you can identify appropriate candidates for the Vertiflex Procedure and support patient access to care.
