Minimally Invasive Fusions
What if I need a spinal fusion?
If there is enough compromise to your spine, you may receive a recommendation for a spinal fusion. This reconstructive procedure is generally a combination of decompression and stabilization, and usually involves hardware placement.
A minimally invasive fusion involves specialized techniques which commonly result in less blood loss, less postoperative pain, and an overall quicker return to everyday function. If you're going to get a fusion, you want to be considered for the least invasive variety.
