I would suggest physio and epidural blocks initially.
If this is not working then there are several options.
If you are looking at no surgery options then I would suggest the X-stop or the newer percutaneous interspinouse devices. This can be done under local anesthesia.
If he is fit for surgery then another option is Keyhole microsurgery with microsurgical decompression of the spinal stenosis. The use of a interspinal spacer: DIAM or Corflex is often useful.
