Your physician will implant Superion® between the spinous processes (the bony projections off the back of each vertebra) through a tube that is approximately the diameter of a dime.

The device is designed to limit extension at the affected level to relieve symptoms while preserving mobility and structural elements. Leaning forward causes the spinal canal to open, which relieves pressure on the nerves. The Superion® implant produces the same effect –relieving pressure on the nerves—without leaning forward.
