Leg and back pain may be the result of a condition called lumbar spinal stenosis, which affects nearly 14 million people who are most commonly adults over the age of 60.¹²  The significant pain associated with lumbar spinal stenosis, or LSS, can have a negative impact on individuals, causing inactivity, disability, functional impairment, and potentially loss of independence.

We are joined by interventional pain management specialist Dr. Iden Cowan at the Capitol Pain Institute in Austin, Texas, for a closer look at a safe, minimally invasive treatment. The Vertiflex™ Procedure† by Boston Scientific has been clinically proven to provide effective long-term relief from the pain associated with LSS.
