Spinal Fusion

Spinal Fusion helps prevent movement between unstable vertebrae to alleviate back problems

Spinal fusion is a medical procedure where two or more vertebrae are permanently connected, eliminating motion between them. It has a success rate between 70 to 90% depending on the condition.

The Spinal fusion can take place in any region of the spine: cervical, lumbar or thoracic. This technique consists of mimicking the healing process of fractured bones. During the fusion process, bone or a similar element is placed between the intervertebral spaces, additionally metal plates and screws are used to immobilize the vertebrae that will eventually heal in a single unit.
