For patients suffering from back or spinal pain due to injury or arthritis, Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California offers spinal fusion surgery.
Spinal fusion surgery requires the fusing of a segment of the spine to a healthy bone on either side of the fusion using a bone graft. This allows new bone cells to grow, effectively fusing the two bones together naturally.
This procedure, designed for patients who have lost functional flexibility in their backs, helps relieve pain by restricting those movements that cause them pain in the first place.
This surgery can be an excellent choice for those suffering from spinal disorders or a spinal cord injury.
