What is it?

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure used to correct problems with the small bones of the spine (vertebrae). Spinal Fusion is essentially a welding process to permanently connect two or more of the vertebrae bones in your spine so they heal into a single solid bone, thus eliminating motion between them. Spinal Fusion is performed generally in the neck and low back, and may be used to correct a wide range of problems associated with the spine. Some of these conditions include; degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, fractures, infections or tumors. Spine surgery is usually recommended only when your doctor can pinpoint your source of pain. This can be done using imaging tests such as x-rays, CT (computed tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans.

Following your operation, your doctor may recommend only light activity, like walking. As you regain strength, you will be able to increase your activity level. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following your doctor’s instructions will improve your chances for a successful outcome and reduce any future injuries.

If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain, weakness of the neck, stiffness of the neck or have a spine injury, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
