Vertiflex Superion Q & A

How does the Vertiflex Superion treatment work? 

The Vertiflex Superion treatment is the latest solution for restoring your spine to its full function, using advanced technology and a minimally invasive procedure. The treatment works by implanting the Superion disc spacer between vertebrae that are compressed or have inadequate space between them.

This patented spacer is made primarily of a rubbery material, which moves with your normal spine movements. But with Superion in place, as you move, those vertebrae stay separated and no longer rub up against one another. 

The Vertiflex Superion treatment has been proven to dramatically improve symptoms associated with spinal stenosis, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, and more. 

What are the benefits of the Vertiflex Superion procedure?

The Vertiflex Superion treatment from Republic Spine and Pain has helped countless patients recover from chronic pain-causing disorders. Your Superion procedure can minimize:

  • Buttock and groin pains
  • Shooting pain down your legs
  • Cramping or stiffness in your buttocks or legs
  • Numbness or muscle weakness in your extremities

The Vertiflex Superion procedure can even improve your posture, help you sit up straight, and minimize issues with being hunched over.

What happens during a Vertiflex Superion treatment?

The Vertiflex Superion procedure is an outpatient minimally invasive surgery that has optimal benefits, with minimal downtime. During the procedure, your physician makes a small incision in the targeted area of your spine.

Using a small tube that’s about the diameter of a dime, your doctor implants the Superion device between your vertebrae. Once your Superion device is in place, your doctor closes up your incision with surgical glue or a few stitches. You can return home the same day and often go back to your everyday activities within a day or two. 

How long does Vertiflex Superion last?

You can expect your Vertiflex Superion treatment from Republic Spine and Pain to provide fast results that last for years. Most patients experience a dramatic reduction in pain and related symptoms for an extended period. The Superion device has been clinically proven to be durable enough to last for up to 48 months, and once it wears down, you can safely have it replaced.
