Lumbar Fusion

The main focus of lumbar fusion surgery is to prevent motion from vertebral segments of the spinal cord causing discomfort or pain being generated from the joints. The surgical procedure involves the insertion of bone graft within the open area between the affected vertebrae, followed by a fusion process connecting the bone graft to the spinal cord. This procedure can be performed with an anterior (front) or posterior (back) approach. Multilevel spinal fusion may be required in the case where more than two vertebrae need to be fused for connectivity along the spinal cord.
