Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion performed by experienced surgeons at Laser Spine Institute in Cincinnati
Suffering from common spinal conditions that cause instability can have a debilitating impact on a patient’s ability to enjoy their life. At Laser Spine Institute we understand that living with the chronic pain and symptoms that these conditions cause can leave you feeling helpless to complete simple tasks, let alone obtain the quality of life that you deserve.
We know that you feel a sense of urgency in finding relief, which is why our skilled and expert surgeons at our Cincinnati center specialize in minimally invasive stabilizations like the transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion as an effective alternative to the traditional open back spinal fusions performed in a hospital setting. In fact, our minimally invasive spine surgery is often the clinically appropriate first choice and provides many advantages versus open neck or back surgery. This streamlined experience also eliminates hospital-associated costs and helps patients get back to their lives faster.
During the procedure, the surgeon enters the spinal column through small incisions on either side of the spine. Performed laterally using a unilateral approach, the transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion is used to treat a variety of the most commonly devastating conditions. During the procedure, the surgeon inserts a bone graft and spacer into the disc space to heighten the area and release any associated compression.
