Spinal Fusion

Lumbar fusion has been used for many years to treat painful conditions in the spine. This surgical technique stabilizes the bones, or vertebrae, and the disc, or shock absorber, between the vertebrae. The goal of spinal fusion is to create solid bone between two or more vertebrae, which may reduce pain from motion, nerve root inflammation, or injury.
