An intervertebral fixation/spacer is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with spinal stenosis. This procedure consists of implanting a small spacer in the spine to alleviate pressure from the nerves in the spine that are causing your pain. We offer two types of an intervertebral fixation being Vertiflex and MinuteMan. These procedure is performed at an outpatient surgery center and is performed under mild sedation.
