Spinal Fusion

A spinal fusion surgery joins together two bones, or vertebrae, in the spine that have moved out of alignment. Spine Center surgeons use several different approaches for spine fusion surgery.

There are many reasons why this surgery may be performed, and it may be done in combination with other procedures. For example, if you have a herniated disc, or an injury that resulted in a spine fracture, your surgeon may feel that spine fusion will ensure a better chance that your fracture won't be reinjured.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and requires a three to four day hospital stay.
