X-Stop® for Spinal Stenosis

X-Stop® at NYU Winthrop Hospital

State-of-the-Art Spinal Stenosis Treatment

X-Stop® is a titanium implant that can provide relief from the pain of spinal stenosis without a traditional laminectomy.

Patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) can suffer from pain in the low back and legs as a result of compression of the nerves in the spinal canal. The pain is classically worse when patients walk, and better when they stop walking and flex forward. This is because flexion tends to open up the spinal canal. The X-Stop places a small titanium implant between the affected levels of the spine (usually L3/4 or L4/5), and effectively produces a permanent slight flexion, which in turn can provide the spinal stenosis treatment needed for symptom relief
