Lumbar Fusion

State-of-the-Art Lumbar Fusion Treatment

Lumbar fusion is a surgical treatment that is performed to relieve various conditions of the spine when physical therapy, medications or other treatment options are not providing necessary relief from spinal pain and discomfort. Lumbar fusion is an innovative treatment performed by our award-winning team of surgeons that may help improve your quality of life.

What Conditions Does Lumbar Fusion Treat?

If other less invasive treatment options are ineffective, lumbar fusion may be performed to treat a number of diseases and conditions of the spine, including:

  • Spinal stenosis — a narrowing of the spinal column causing pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
  • Degenerative disc disease — compression of the spinal cord and nerves caused by degeneration of the cushioning discs between the vertebrae.
  • Scoliosis — an abnormal curvature of the spine.
  • Fracture of a Vertebra
  • Infections of the spine
  • Spinal instability which may be caused by deterioration of muscles, ligaments, and discs that support the spine.

What Is a Lumbar Fusion?

Lumbar fusion is the surgical joining of two vertebrae in the lumbar spine (lower back), which permanently inhibits movement between the two vertebrae. A bone graft is typically used in this procedure to fuse, or join, two vertebrae. Your surgeon may also use screws, rods or plates to hold the vertebrae in place. The aim of back fusion surgery is to help decrease pain while maintaining function in a damaged or diseased lumbar spine.

Depending on your spinal pain, disease or disorder there are several different surgeries your NSPC doctor can choose from. Our team of neurosurgeons have your best interest in mind and will make sure you get the surgery that fits your life.
