Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a common cause of low back pain. First-line treatment options may include physical therapy, home exercise and analgesics. These treatment options may not provide adequate pain relief.

Deaconess Comprehensive Pain Center physicians are participating in a national research study to evaluate two treatment options for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis who have not been able to manage their pain with more conservative first-line treatments.

To qualify for the study, you must be age 65 or older, have back pain from lumbar spinal stenosis and have Medicare.

If you are interested in learning more about this study, please call the Deaconess Research Info-Line at 812-474-7184 or toll free 877-654-0311.

Research Physicians: Dr. Francis McDonnell and Dr. Joseph Waling.
