Proven Patient Outcomes

Change the Way You Treat Advanced Degenerative LSS

Outcome measures of patients with moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis who received surgical treatment using the coflex® device demonstrate significant clinical improvement. 

By adding the coflex® device to your surgical toolbox, you can help more patients reclaim their lives.

Patient satisfaction at 2 years post-op
93% were satisfied with their outcome1
Lasting improvement: Pain and function
88% — 2 years after surgery1
90% — 3 years after surgery1
Clinically significant measures at 2 years post-op
88% — improved VAS (back)1
83% — improved VAS (leg)1
Early symptom improvement/relief at 6 weeks post-op
90% — spinal stenosis symptoms relieved1
85% — physical function improved1
82% — successful clinical outcome (ODI)1
Fewer patients needed narcotics 6 weeks after surgery, which was sustained through 2 years compared to fusion patients1

Why patients choose coflex® compared to pedicle screw fixation for spinal stenosis1

94% of coflex® patients were more satisfied with their outcome at 2 years compared to 87% of fusion patients1 90% of coflex® patients had faster relief of their symptoms at 6 weeks compared to 77% of fusion patients1 88% of coflex® patients had lasting relief of their symptoms at 2 years compared to 78% of fusion patients1
