What is a 360 Spinal Fusion?
Patients who suffer from chronic lower back pain may experience the inability to continue with daily activities because of the pain. Lower back pain can be constant and debilitating, causing you to have a lower quality of life.
At Laser Spine Institute, we understand the hopelessness that you feel when looking for treatment options for lower back pain. Many of our patients endured pain for several years without any lasting relief from conservative treatment options, such as physical therapy and chiropractic care.
Maybe you have experienced this same frustration of trying several treatments with no lasting relief. Or maybe you have suffered a failed open back surgery and you think that you are out of treatment options. We are here to tell you that there is another treatment for chronic lower back pain that is as effective as traditional open back surgery. Our minimally invasive lateral lumbar interbody fusion procedure helps patients alleviate the pain associated with a compressed nerve in the lower back and recapture their active lifestyle.
If you are experiencing debilitating lower back pain and you are seeking an effective treatment option, we encourage you to keep reading and research our lateral lumbar interbody fusion procedure.
What is our minimally invasive lateral lumbar interbody fusion procedure?
Our minimally invasive lateral lumbar Interbody fusion (LLIF) procedure aims to alleviate the pain associated with a compressed nerve in the lower (lumbar) back. As a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open back surgery, we perform this procedure through a small incision in the side of the body. The surgeon will access the spine through the side incision and proceed to remove the diseased disc in the lumbar that is impacting the nerve. Once the disc is removed, the surgeon will insert a spacer to restore the proper height between vertebrae, and then fuse bone grafts to the adjacent vertebra to immediately stabilize the spine.
The purpose of accessing the spine through a minimal incision in the side of the body is to avoid separating the lower back muscles, cutting bone or moving aside blood vessels. These precautions are not taken during traditional open back surgery, thus resulting in a longer recovery process.*
