Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion

The purpose of a lateral lumbar interbody fusion is to stabilize the spine and reduce pain caused by degenerative disc disease. The benefits include restoring stability and balance as well as improved flexibility. During the procedure, an incision of 1-1.5 inches is created on either side of your spine then the damaged disc or discs are removed and replaced with a bone graft surrogate which will eventually fuse with the surrounding vertebrae tissue.

It is clear that Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion offers a great deal of potential benefits for relieving the pain associated with a degenerative spinal condition but it is recommended to discuss your personalized treatment plan further with your healthcare provider in order to explore all options.
