Interspinous Process Decompression (X-STOP®)

In some instances, a patient may seek out alternative treatments to relieve lumbar pain if a laminectomy or spinal fusion is not for her. In the video on this page, you'll learn more about the X-STOP implant and how it's used in interspinous process decompression. In this minimally invasive outpatient procedure, a small incision is made while under local anesthesia and sedation. The X-STOP, a titanium alloy implant, is placed between the spinous process. The implant relieves the pressure, lessening lower back pain, while also getting rid of radiating pain in the legs.
