Lumbar Spinal S
At the Allegheny General Hospital Department of Neurosurgery,
surgeons Donald Whiting, MD, E. Richard Prostko, MD, and
Michael Oh, MD, are participating in a clinical trial to evaluate
the safety and effectiveness of the ACADIA® Facet Replacement
System for those suffering from LSS. This investigational device
is designed to treat LSS without fusion while maintaining the
motion of the spine. AGH Neurosurgery is one of up to 30 sites
in the U.S. approved for inclusion in this study.
Male and female patients between the ages of 21 and 85 who
have been diagnosed with LSS and undergone at least six
months of non-surgical treatment (including epidurals, physical
therapy or medication) may qualify for this study. For more
information, please contact Allegheny General Hospital’s
Department of Neurosurgery at 412.359.4272 or email:
