Spinal Fusion Surgery
Neurology Center of Excellence
Patients with the following diseases could be candidates for spinal fusion surgery:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Isthmic, degenerative or post laminectomy spondylolisthesis.
Other conditions that may be treated by a spinal fusion surgery include a weak or unstable spine (caused by infections or tumors), fractures, scoliosis or deformity. This is if abnormal and excessive movement at a vertebral segment causes severe pain and an inability to function normally.
