Interspinous Process Decompression

New Jersey's TOP Orthopaedic and Spine Center specializing in Interspinous Process Decompression

Interspinous Process Decompression

Interspinous Devices

Interspinous devices (spacers) are small devices composed of a plastic-like polymer. They are implanted between the spinous processes of the symptomatic lumbar levels.

Spinous processes are the thin projections from the back of the spinal bones to which muscle and ligaments are attached.

Interspinous Process Decompression

After implantation, the spacers are expanded to open and separate the spinal canal. This serves as a form of decompression (such as on the facet and discs) and pain relief by providing more room for the structures and alleviating the pressure on the nerves, and thus also enabling normal motion.

Interspinous devices are utilized for spinal stenosis and other causes of low back pain. These spacers allow the anatomy of the spine to remain uncompromised and thus are less invasive than other procedures.
