Advanced Spine Fusions

Fusion or disk replacement surgery in the lumbar spinal region are among the most common spinal operations. Advances in technology have made these operations increasingly effective and have reduced the time needed to recover from surgery.

Animation at right: After removing most  of the disk, the surgeon can spread open the collapsed disk space and then place a graft. These grafts sliced from a femur leg bone of a cadaver donor  and are machined to an optimum wedge shape.  A femoral ring allograft also allows for the placement of bone fusion promoting proteins in the central space of the ring graft.
