For decades, the surgical options for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) were limited to either decompression or decompression with spinal fusion. In 2012, the FDA approved the Coflex® Interlaminar Stabilization® device, a small U-shaped titanium implant that provides spinal stability without the invasiveness and loss of mobility associated with spinal fusion.

The Coflex® Device in Action

After surgical decompression, which removes pressure on the impinged nerves, your spine surgeon will insert the Coflex® device through the same small incision. The device is positioned on the lamina, which is the strongest bone in the back of your spine.

The unique design of the Coflex® device maintains stability in the spine after direct surgical decompression while preserving more natural movement in the treated area. If you suffer from leg and/or back pain caused by spinal stenosis you could be a candidate for the Coflex® device.

The benefits of the Coflex® device include:

  • Addresses back pain

  • Addresses leg pain

  • Prevents collapse and re-stenosis

  • Alternative to fusion

  • May minimize adjacent degeneration

  • Return to daily activities significantly sooner

Additionally, for qualified people, the Coflex® procedure can be performed in an outpatient setting which can contribute to better outcomes, lowered infection rates, decreased medical costs, and a higher quality experience overall.1 For more information about the Coflex® device download our Coflex® Device Education Brochure.
