Vertiflex for Spinal Stenosis

Back Pain Atlanta GA

When the lower back hurts, many people fear that the only two options are to either live with the pain or have spine surgery. For most, neither of these are ideal options. Living with back pain can be miserable and have debilitating effects on your life. Yet, undergoing spine surgery requires months of rehab, and there is no guarantee that the results will be 100% successful.

Vertiflex is an FDA-approved, outpatient treatment procedure that offers a minimally invasive approach to treating back pain. The Vertiflex procedure gives the spinal cord and its associated nerves space and relieves the symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis.

The spine is a complex feature of the human body. Inside the spine is a channel called the spinal canal. The vertebrae surround this canal, and the canal protects the spinal cord. Damage to the spinal cord can cause irreversible damage and paralysis, which is why the body was designed with such intricacies to protect the spinal cord.

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. It is an unfortunate side effect of aging, but as the body ages, the joints of the spine slowly start to break down. This degeneration can cause the onset of many different conditions that reduce the space around the spinal cord. The most common conditions are bulging discs, bone spurs, enlarged joints, and the thickening of spinal ligaments. When the narrowing of the spinal canal finally constricts too much, it will start pinching nerves. The most common symptoms of LSS are:

  • Shooting pain in the back, which can travel down the buttock area
  • Numbness in the leg
  • Tingling
  • Weakness in the leg or foot
  • And, of course, pain in the lower back

Vertiflex is a solution for back pain patients for whom injections or medications have failed. It is also a reasonable option for those who may not be good candidates for surgery. Vertiflex works by inserting an implant to spread the compressed vertebrae apart and hold them in the proper position.

Joy P.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
