Mild is an outpatient LSS procedure that removes the cause of stenosis through a portal the size of a baby aspirin. 

More than 25,000 patients underwent treatment with the Mild procedure, and initial study data demonstrated a significant improvement in mobility and decrease in pain.

The study will gather patient-reported pain and function outcome measures as well as quality of life data using Fitbit activity trackers.

Around 150 patients between 50-80 years of age were enrolled in the study.
