New Jersey’s Premier Center
For MILD® Procedure

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, also known as MISS, offers several advantages over traditional open surgery. It involves smaller incisions, reduced trauma to surrounding tissues, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times. Here at NASPI, we specialize in a range of Minimally Invasive procedures to address various spine conditions.

What is Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (mild®)?

 The mild® procedure is a minimally invasive treatment designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by LSS. This condition often results from age-related changes in the spine, arthritis, pre-existing medical conditions, or inherited conditions. Instead of relying on pain medications or traditional surgery, mild® offers a popular alternative that directly addresses the root cause of your pain.

How Does mild® Work?

The mild® procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort. We make a small incision to access the affected area and use a specialized tool to remove excess tissue constricting the spinal canal. By creating more space, the pressure on the nerves is relieved, which leads to reduced pain and improved mobility.

Conditions Treated With Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (mild®) Procedures?

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a condition where the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. Our minimally invasive procedures aim to relieve this pressure, reducing pain and restoring mobility.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease occurs as the spinal discs age and lose their cushioning properties. We offer innovative treatments to manage pain and restore function, helping you enjoy an active lifestyle.

Disc Herniations

Disc herniations happen when the inner material of a disc protrudes through its outer layer, often causing nerve compression and intense pain. Our surgical interventions target these herniations, providing lasting relief.

Degenerative Joint Disease

Also known as osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease affects the joints of the spine, leading to pain and stiffness. Our procedures can help alleviate discomfort and improve joint function.

Facet Syndrome – Facet Joint Arthritis

Facet syndrome is characterized by pain and inflammation in the facet joints of the spine. Our treatments, including facet joint injections, can effectively manage this condition and restore comfort.

Radiculopathy – Pinched Nerve(s)

Radiculopathy refers to nerve compression, which can result in pain, numbness, or weakness radiating from the spine. We specialize in pinpointing the source of radiculopathy and offering tailored interventions for relief.

Are You Struggling With Low Back Pain, Walking, or Numbness?

Low back pain, difficulty walking, and numbness in the legs are common symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis. Back pain may limit your ability to stand or sit comfortably, while numbness and weakness can make walking or standing a struggle. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s essential to seek medical care to regain your mobility and quality of life.

Causes of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Understanding these underlying factors is crucial in tailoring an effective treatment plan for each patient’s situation. Lumbar spinal stenosis can result from various factors, including:

Age-related changes in the spine: As we age, the spine undergoes degenerative changes that can lead to LSS.
Arthritis: Arthritic conditions can cause inflammation and tissue changes that narrow the spinal canal.

Pre-existing medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or obesity, can increase the risk of LSS.

Inherited conditions: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to developing LSS.

Benefits of the mild® Procedure for Back Pain

When finding relief from lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), the mild® procedure stands out for its exceptional effectiveness compared to alternative therapies.

Recovery times can vary depending on the specific procedure and individual patient factors. However, our commitment to minimally invasive techniques means that, in general, you can expect:

 

  • Shorter Hospital Stays: Most patients can go home same day or within a day or two after surgery.
  • Faster Return to Normal Activities: You’ll typically be able to resume light activities within a couple of weeks.
  • Less Pain and Discomfort: Smaller incisions and reduced tissue trauma mean less post-operative pain.
  • Personalized Rehabilitation: Our team will work with you to create a customized rehabilitation plan to optimize your recovery.

” I was involved in a bad motor vehicle accident back in September of 2022 and saw Dr. Dorri for the first time in January of 2023 and it is now August and I am about 80% relieved of the pain I thought would haunt me forever. Being a woman as active as myself, the thought of being slaved to pain, was a detriment to my day to day. I am so happy I was under Dr. Dorri’s care!! NASPI feels like home and even Dr. Dorri’s staff is great! Thank you Dr. Dorri!!! “

Fiordaliz M.

“After months of intense pain I was beginning to accept that this might be permanent, but Dr. Dorri and his staff have definitely turned that idea around. I have been making significant progress, and all of my fears about the procedures were calmed when they explained how ultrasound and other techniques were employed for extra layers of safety, which I greatly appreciated.

I’ll end with relaying and on-going thank you to not just Dr. Dorri but his amazing staff as well for taking care of me ever since this car accident knocked everything off-track. Looking forward to completing my treatment and getting my life back.”
