If non-surgical treatment options aren’t successful, it may be time to consider surgery. Decompression with the coflex® Interlaminar Stabilization® device is an alternative to fusion, that reduces pain, and helps preserve mobility.
The coflex device is the only posterior lumbar motion preservation solution with proven long-term outcomes for durable pain relief and stability. The “U” shape design allows the coflex device to be positioned on the strongest bony structure of the posterior column, the lamina. The coflex implant maintains the height between the bones in your spine to help the nerves move freely.
The coflex device is an option for patients that do not want to go through pedicle screw fusion, but for whom a decompression alone would not offer needed stability.
