What to expect from surgery involving LimiFlex™
During surgery, your surgeon will typically perform other standard surgical procedures before implanting LimiFlex™ to stabilize your spine. For example, your surgeon may perform a surgical decompression, removing bone and soft tissue which are compressing nerves and causing pain. LimiFlex™ may then be implanted and secured before your incision is closed.
Once in place, LimiFlex™ acts to stabilize the spine without fusing it. LimiFlex™ is designed to be a permanent implant.
Patient testimonial: “My life has become worth living again!”
Luise (61 years old) suffered from back pain for almost 15 years. During the last 2 years, only strong pain medications allowed her to take care of her daily duties. When neurological symptoms added to the unbearable pain Luise decided, together with her neurosurgeon, to undergo surgery in order to address her spinal canal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis. Luise had a surgical decompression, which relieved her symptoms, and subsequent stabilization using the LimiFlex™ Paraspinous Tension Band.
