Lumbar Fusion

A spinal fusion procedure is a surgery to permanently join two bones together so there is no longer movement between them. We offer minimally invasive spinal fusion procedures that typically result in scars no more than 3 centimeters long.

During a lumber spinal fusion, the surgeon places an implant within the space between two spinal vertebrae. Then screws and rods may be used to hold the vertebrae together, so they can heal into one solid unit. The correction of movement between the bones of the spine can eliminate the severe pain caused by a variety of spine disorders.
