What Is Spine Fusion Surgery?

Spinal fusion surgery is a procedure performed to join together two or more vertebrae in the spine. It’s typically done to eliminate motion between them, reduce pain, and stabilize the spine. Surgeons use bone grafts, metal implants, or a combination of both to create the fusion. The bone graft can be taken from the patient’s own body (autograft), from a donor (allograft), or made from synthetic materials.

Spine Fusion Surgery

Here’s a basic overview of the procedure:

  • Preparation: Before surgery, the patient undergoes pre-operative evaluation, which may include imaging tests like X-rays, MRI, or CT scans. They may also need to undergo blood tests and other assessments to ensure they’re fit for surgery.
  • Anesthesia: The patient is placed under general anesthesia, so they’re unconscious and don’t feel any pain during the procedure.
  • Incision: The surgeon makes an incision in the back, abdomen, or neck, depending on the location of the affected vertebrae.
  • Bone Graft: The surgeon prepares the bones for fusion by removing any damaged tissue and placing the bone graft material between the vertebrae.
  • Implants: Metal implants, such as screws, rods, or plates, may be used to stabilize the spine and hold the vertebrae in place while fusion occurs.
  • Closure: Once the bone graft and implants are in place, the incision is closed with sutures or staples.

Spinal Fusion Surgery: Recovery, Indications, and Considerations

Recovery from spinal fusion surgery can vary depending on factors like the patient’s overall health, the extent of the surgery, and the specific techniques used. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are usually required to help the patient regain strength, mobility, and flexibility in the spine.

Spinal fusion surgery is commonly performed to treat conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal fractures, and spinal deformities like scoliosis. It’s considered a major surgery and is usually recommended when more conservative treatments, like medication, physical therapy, and injections, have failed to provide relief.
