Spinal Fusion Surgery (PLIF/ TLIF)

Spinal Fusion Surgery is a surgical procedure that is done on the spine to stabilize the area between two vertebrae that is responsible for shock absorption. This involves fixing a bone graft in between the two vertebrae to normalize the vertebral movements. This surgery is only prescribed in cases when the space between the two discs has reduced or the spine has become unstable. Unless there is not a need for the patient to undergo surgery, the doctors try and treat the condition with physiotherapy and medicines.

The spine consists of small bones stacked on top of each other which are separated by some discs that have multiple roles such as shock absorption and cushioning. These discs sometimes get damaged due to injuries and spine diseases. There is a need to replace these discs with artificial ones. This is where spinal fusion surgery comes into existence.

The bone graft or fusion implant is placed in between two vertebrae to fuse them. The implants are made of various materials including plastic, bone, or metal. This method is very useful in restoring proper alignment of the spine.

Spinal fusion surgery can be performed in both traditional open spine way or minimally invasive way. The minimally invasive technique is mostly used because of its extreme advantages which include fewer infection chances, faster recovery and better results with less incision.

How does the Spinal Fusion Surgery performed?

The surgeon makes a small incision at the back.

Step 1 – A small tube is then inserted into the incision to dilate the muscles.

Step 2 – This provides a better passage for the surgical instruments and the camera to go inside.

Step 3 – Now the surgeon removes the desired discuss from the vertebrae and fixes and artificial one with utmost precision.

Step 4 – The tube is then taken out and the incision is stitched back to as it was before.

The heartbeat, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels are constantly monitored throughout the surgery. Local anaesthesia or mild sedatives are given to help them relax.
