The spinal fusion procedures are meant to connect two or more vertebrae in your spine, this way the motion between them is eliminated. To accomplish this the surgeon will use a technique that mimics the normal healing process of a broken bone, placing bone or some other bone-like artificial material within the space between two spinal vertebrae.
There are several cases when your doctor might recommend spinal fusion surgery, among which we find the following:
Herniated disk: After the removal of a damaged disk, spinal fusion can be used
Deformities of the spine: Scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine. Spinal fusion may be used to correct the curvature
Spinal instability or weakness: Spinal fusion may be used to restore spine damaged by arthritis
