Totalis™ Lumbar Decompression: Treatment for Spinal Stenosis
Totalis Lumbar Decompression in South Florida: W. Porter McRoberts, MD and Paul Wu, MD
The wear-and-tear effects of aging can cause narrowing of the canal that encases and protects the spinal cord. With less room, the spinal discs or joints can press on the spinal cord or spinal nerves. This condition is called Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. TotalisTM Lumbar Decompression is a treatment for this condition and involves a set of specialized instruments designed to safely remove the tissue and bone that are putting pressure on the nerves of your lower back. The procedure is performed through a very small incision and does not require general anesthesia. Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine specialists W. Porter McRoberts, MD, and Paul Wu, MD, of the Holy Cross Neurological and Spine Institute perform this procedure, offering back pain relief to patients in South Florida.
