Spinal fusion is a type of a back surgery procedure for joining two or more bones permanently in the spine to prevent movement between them. The bones that are joined are called as vertebrae.
Reason for performing the spinal fusion (Medicinal uses)
Spinal fusion is performed along with other surgical procedures such as foraminotomy or laminectomy and after discectomy in the neck. Spinal fusion is required if the patient has injury or fractures of the spine bones. The spine will become weak due to infection or tumors. Spinal fusion is also performed in abnormal curvatures that result from scoliosis or kyphosis.
