Dr. Chowdhury is the only certified physician in the Rio Grande Valley to conduct this procedure.
A doctor who is certified to perform mild® will use an imaging machine and specialized tools to remove small pieces of bone and excess ligament tissue through a tiny incision in your back.
The mild® procedure has been performed safely on thousands of patients. Removing these elements restores space in the spinal canal and decreases the compression of the nerves, which reduces pain and restores mobility.
Some doctors have described the goal of the procedure as being similar to “removing a kink in a drinking straw.” Patients will be sent to a Outpatient hospital for this procedure, and is typically performed in less than 1 hour. They are able to resume light activities within just days.
This procedure requires no general anesthesia, no implants and no stiches.
