Spine Fusion Surgery
Lumbar Spine Services
Spine fusion is a surgical procedure used to link together vertebrae, often because of a damaged disc. During surgery, bone growth is stimulated and then used to link the vertebrae together to stop the painful movement in the area. This procedure may be performed through the abdomen, back, or side, and involves making several small incisions, into which a camera and surgical instruments are inserted. A dilator is used to spread the muscles and provide access to the spine for placement of screws or rods.
