Posterior Spinal Fusion


This procedure is similar to ALIF, except the approach is from the posterior (back) and can be used on the cervical and thoracic spine in addition to the lumbar spine. It can help patients experiencing pain from vertibrae moving against each other, or against other nerves.

In this surgery, the surgeon cuts through (and later repairs) the muscles of the neck or back to access the vertebra to be treated. Two or more vertebra are fused together to stop them from moving, which stops the pain by stopping the motion of the vertabrae. For certain cases, our practice also offers an anterior (frontal) approach to this surgery as well.
