Kathryn Wirth, 63, suffered for years from back pain worsened by movement. Unable to stand or walk for extended periods of time, she decided to undergo the mild® procedure in December of 2012, after her physician confirmed a lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) diagnosis with an MRI. Prior to having the procedure, she relied on pain medications to help relieve the discomfort.
For Kathryn, the procedure took about half an hour; she went home the same day and barely noticed the small incision on her back covered by an adhesive strip. After resting that first night, she was up and about the next day and noticed an immediate improvement in her mobility. The post-procedure pain relief she experienced in her legs, specifically, has lasted, and she has had gradual improvement since.
The relief Kathryn experienced was above and beyond what she expected. Kathryn resumed her normal lifestyle and now has a daily walking routine. She said that the mild® procedure provided significant relief without causing excruciating post-surgical pain and significant downtime. Kathryn recommends the mild® procedure to other sufferers of LSS. “I would urge anyone who fits the criteria as a patient to consider it as a treatment right away.”
