Spinal Fusion is a surgical procedure to fuse two or more bones of the spinal vertebrae using either the bone tissue of the patient or artificial bone graft or screws/plates, so as to mimic natural healing process of broken bones. This eliminates motion between the affected vertebrae resulting in reduction of pain and prevention of stretching of surrounding muscles and nerves.
The surgery is most commonly done in the lumbar region of the spine. Cervical spinal fusion is done to stabilize the neck and protect the spinal cord after an injury.
Spinal Fusion increases the pressure on the bones below the fused portion and may result in rapid degeneration of spine.
It is also called spondylodesis or spondylosyndesis.
The surgeon will suggest the following:
Imaging tests such as X ray, CT scan and MRI to locate the painful vertebrae.
Stopping blood thinning medications atlease 10 days prior to the procedure
Fasting for at least 8 to 12 hours prior to the surgery
Generally, the patient has to stay in the hospital for 3 to 5 days. Complete fusion, similar to natural healing, takes a few months.
After discharge, the surgeon will recommend
Wear a back brace for atleast a month after the surgery
The patient to sit, stand and sleep so as to allow proper alignment
Avoid any strenuous activity
