What Conditions Does Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Treat?
Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion is used to treat leg and back pain associated with nerves pinching due to degenerative disc disease. What this means is that when the discs in the lumbar portion of the spine deteriorate it can cause the vertebrae to pinch nerves along the spine. This can cause chronic back and leg pain, or sciatica.
If you are suffering from the pain associated with degenerative disc disease, come in for a consultation with one of doctors and surgeons today to see if ALIF might be an effective option for you.
