The purpose of a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) is to secure and steady the balance of the spine to relieve pain and nerve irritation, along with removing discs that are damaged or diseased.

Neurological Surgery, P.C. (NSPC) uses new technologies to shorten your recovery time. Spine innovations that our board-certified spine surgeons use on cervical and lumbar spine surgeries include ultrasonic technology and transcollation devices. Ultrasonic devices emulsify bone thus limiting the chances of damage to soft tissue and leakage of spinal fluid. Transcollation technology helps close off blood vessels, and decreases the likelihood of blood loss and limits transfusion rates. These translate into a safer surgery for you and better spinal fusion recovery times.
