Spinal fusion is surgery to permanently join together two or more bones in the spine so there is no movement between them. These bones are called vertebrae.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Inter-body Fusion (ACDF)
Anterior cervical discectomy and inter-body fusion with instrumentation is one of the most effective procedures to treat cervical pathologies. In this procedure, all or part of the disc separating the vertebrae is removed, and the vertebrae are permanently fused together to eliminate movement.
Posterior Cervical Fusion
Posterior cervical fusion uses contemporary fixation techniques for the occipitocervical and upper thoracic spine, such as multiaxial screws, laminar hooks, and lateral connector attachments to a longitudinal rod.
Minimally Invasive Decompression and Fusion
Compared to open surgery, minimally invasive decompression and fusion techniques minimize damage to muscles and skin, blood loss, and scarring. Patients can also expect a shorter hospital stay after surgery.
Transformation Lumbar Inter-body Fusion (TLIF)
This lower-back surgery stabilizes the spinal vertebra and the disc or shock absorbed between them, reducing pain and nerve irritation. Lumbar fusion surgery creates solid bone between adjoining vertebra, eliminating any movement between the bones.
Direct Lateral Inter-body Fusion (DLIF)
Direct lateral inter-body fusion is a minimally invasive surgery using integrated, image-guided tools and neural monitoring to shorten surgical and recovery time and return patients more quickly to normal, active lives. The surgeon accesses the lumbar spine through the muscle, fusing the vertebrae to address degeneration, deformity, and other conditions of the lower spine.
