spinal fusion

Specialty of Neurological Surgery

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to treat degenerative diseases of the spine. The fusion consists in fixing two bone parts rigidly and irreversibly anchoring a joint using screws, plates and titanium rods. Its aim is to stabilize the spine to relieve local pain. In addition, decompression of the nerve roots relieves sciatic pain and difficulty walking, typical of stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal. The technique of spinal fusion is divided into anterior cervical fusion, posterior cervical arthrodesis and posterior lumbar spine fusion. The spinal fusion is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia.
