If the cause of your back pain seems to be motion between segments of your vertebrae, spinal fusion may be a way to prevent motion and stop the pain. Spinal fusion surgery, also known as spondylodesis or spondylosyndesis, is a surgical technique used to combine two or more vertebrae. Spinal fusion is surgery to fuse spine bones (vertebrae) that cause you to have back problems. Fusing means two bones are permanently placed together so there is no longer movement between them. Supplementary bone tissue either autograft or allograft is used in conjunction with the body's natural osteoblastic processes. This procedure is used primarily to eliminate the pain caused by abnormal motion of the vertebrae by immobilizing the vertebrae themselves. Conditions where spinal fusion surgery is used: Spinal fusion is done most commonly in the lumbar region of the spine, but it is also used to treat cervical and thoracic problems.

Conditions for which spinal fusion is most commonly done: • degenerative disc disease • discogenic pain • spinal tumor • vertebral fracture • scoliosis • spondylolisthesis • spondylosis • other degenerative spinal conditions • any condition that causes instability of the spine Types of spinal fusion: There are two main types of spinal fusion, which may be used in conjunction with each other: Posterolateral fusion places the bone graft between the transverse processes in the back of the spine. These vertebrae are then fixed in place with screws and/or wire through the pedicles of each vertebrae attaching to a metal rod on each side of the vertebrae. Interbody fusion places the bone graft between the vertebrae in the area usually occupied by the intervertebral disc. In preparation for the spinal fusion, the disc is removed entirely. The fusion then occurs between the endplates of the vertebrae. This procedure may be done through the abdomen (Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion or ALIF) or through the back (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion or PLIF). Using both types of fusion in conjunction yields the highest chances of successful fusion. This is known as 360-degree fusion. Spinal fusion Surgery procedure: Spinal fusion surgery requires general anesthesia. The procedure may take from two to 12 hours, depending on how extensive the surgery is and the technique your surgeon uses. Surgery may involve a large incision, or may be done using newer techniques with smaller incisions. To fuse the spine doctor needs small pieces of extra bone to fill the space between two vertebrae. This bone may come from your own body (autogenous bone), usually from a pelvic bone. Or, it

Bone graft substitutes, such as genetically engineered proteins, are being developed as alternatives to using bones from body or a bone bank. Sometimes, doctors also use wires, rods, screws, metal cages or plates. Benefits of Spinal Fusion Surgery: Any procedures done to reduce pain and improve mobility in patients are a benefit. Undergoing a spinal fusion might decrease pain in the back and legs, as well as reduce spine curvatures like scoliosis. Spinal fusion procedures are often recommended to those who suffer from severe back pain due to slippage of bones, causing misalignment. Other ailments a spine fusion might help improve are recurrent disc herniation, traumatic injury to the spine and fractures. Risks for spine fusion surgery are: • Infection in the wound or vertebral bones • Damage to a spinal nerve, causing weakness, pain, loss of sensation, problems with your bowels or bladder • The spinal column above and below the fusion are more likely to cause other back later.
