Advanced Spinal Fusion Surgery – What to expect after the surgery


Advanced Spinal Fusion Surgery - Spinal fusion surgery is mainly conducted in two types. First one is the anterior lumbar interbody fusion when the operation is operating through your belly.  So another is posterior fusion, where the doctor goes in from the back. The anterior approach is more common than the second one. Recently, the minimally invasive procedure has also been developed to carry out the spinal fusion surgeries with minor incisions and without disturbing most of the back muscles and nerves.

Advanced Spinal Fusion Surgery in India – What to expect after the surgery?

Spinal fusion surgery is a surgical procedure conducted to join two or more vertebrae to eliminate any motion between those small spine bones. The concept of this fusion surgery is almost similar to the join process. The basic plan behind fusing two or more vertebrae is to allow those damaged bones to heal into a single, solid bone. Apart from treating fractured vertebra and improve spinal deformity, spinal fusion surgery may help cure symptoms of much other back complication also. Some of the alternative potential reasons to consider spinal fusion are degenerative disk disease, spondylolisthesis, cervical disc herniations, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, tumors, or some spine infections.

Advanced Spinal Fusion Surgery in India can be done by using supplemental tools like plates, screws, and cages or by bone grafting. In the case of bone grafting, the bone may be taken either from the patient’s own body, usually made from hip or pelvis, or a bone bank. After surgery, the recovery time may differ from patient to patients. The hospitalization period depends on many other factors, like the general fitness level and if the patient has any other medical conditions, and so on. In general, 3 – 5 days of hospital stay is mediatory before discharge.
