An interspinous process spacer is a medical device that is implanted between the spinous processes of the vertebrae in the lower back. The spinous processes are bony protuberances that can be felt along the midline of the back, and they provide attachment points for the muscles and ligaments of the spine. The purpose of an interspinous process spacer is to create space between the vertebrae and reduce pressure on the spinal nerves, which can help to relieve pain and improve mobility in the lower back.

The spacer is typically made of a biocompatible material such as titanium or polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and is shaped like a small wedge. It is inserted through a small back incision and is held with screws or other fixation devices. The procedure to implant an interspinous process spacer is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about an hour to complete.

Several different brands of interspinous process spacers are available on the market, and they are often used as an alternative to more invasive procedures such as laminectomy or fusion surgery. While the procedure is generally considered safe, some potential risks and complications can occur, including infection, bleeding, and damage to the surrounding nerves or tissues. As with any surgical procedure, it is important to carefully weigh the potential benefits and risks with a healthcare provider before deciding to undergo treatment.
