One must realize that if what you're doing isn't changing things, surgery is a viable option. I had mine on May 8, 2007 and it eliminated all pain and tingling in my legs. The nerves were pinched and L4 had slipped out of place. In one day I knew it was the right decision. Physical therapy has started to strengthen my back and leg muscles and I feel great! A possitive attitude and the will to get back to a normal life of work and leisure actives is imperative.

Various centers in the Unites States are enrolling patients in a prospective, randomized study comparing the TOPS™ System to a traditional posterior fusion. This may mean preserved motion in addition to stability for the patients with moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis. Annually, 120,000 people undergo spinal fusion surgery, an invasive procedure that also limits mobility. The TOPS™ System, a total posterior spine motion device designed by Impliant is an approved device used in Europe. It is designed to stabilize the operative spine segment, but does not fuse the affected vertebral level, potentially preserving mobility.
