Spinal Fusion Surgery Treatment in India

treatment
starting from

Spinal fusion, also called spondylodesis or spondylosyndesis, is a neurosurgical or orthopedic surgical technique that joins two or more vertebrae. This procedure can be performed at any level in the spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar) and prevents any movement between the fused vertebrae. There are many types of spinal fusion and each technique involves using bone grafting either from the patient (autograft), donor (allograft), or artificial bone substitutes to help the bones heal together. Additional hardware (screws, plates, or cages) is often used to hold the bones in place while the graft fuses the two vertebrae together.

Types of Spinal fusion surgery

Part of spine– Spinal fusion can be done at any location of spine

Lumbar fusion– Commonly done procedure mainly due to degenerative disc changes in lumbar spine which causes
pressure on the spinal cord nerves

Cervical fusion– Also commonly performed due to increased motion and stress on cervical spine.

Thoracic fusion –Thoracic spine being more immobile, so usually the cause of fusion in thoracic spine is trauma or deformities.

Multi levels of spinal fusion

One level spinal fusion- used to stop motion at one segment eg L4-L5, two vertebra need to be joined together to stop motion at one segment.

Two level spinal fusion used to stop motion at two segments L4-L5, L5-S1, that is it involves joining of three vertebra , however spinal fusion of 2 or more levels is unlikely to provide pain relief as hampers normal motion of back and puts stress across remaining joints .

Fusion of 3 or more levels is not done except in cases of scoliosis or deformity .
