Robert Louis, MD, your Orange County Neurosurgeon, performs Spinal Fusion Surgery is a surgery to permanently connect two or more vertebrae in your spine, eliminating motion between them. Spinal fusion involves techniques designed to mimic the normal healing process of broken bones.

Spinal Fusion Surgery Procedure

This surgery involves techniques designed to mimic the normal healing process of broken bones. During spinal fusion, Dr. Louis places bone or a bone-like material within the space between two spinal vertebrae. Metal plates, screws and rods may be used to hold the vertebrae together, so they can heal into one solid unit. This process can be recommended to treat the following spine problems, broken vertebrae, deformities of the spine, herniated disk, chronic low back pain, and spondylolisthesis

What Are The Results?

This approach uses smaller incisions, which causes less damage to the surrounding tissues.Instead of cutting and moving muscles, the minimally invasive techniques can more gently spread through the muscles to allow access to the spine. This is much less painful for the patient, and it does not require as long of a recovery period for the muscle to heal.
