  • Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) using Cortical Bone Trajectory Screw Fixation

    A transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is a surgical procedure that stabilizes the spine and reduces back and leg pain by joining two or more vertebral bones by fusing them with bone forming across the disc space. This minimally invasive technique is used to prevent abnormal movement and allowing for restoration of disc height which then relieves the pressure on the spinal nerves and alleviates leg and back pain without having to open the patient from the front or abdomen and back or a “360” fusion as some of those surgeries are known.

  • Lateral Lumbar Fusion

    The Lateral Interbody Fusion is an approach to spinal fusion in which the surgeon accesses the intervertebral disc space and fuses the lumbar spine (low back) using a surgical approach from the side (lateral) rather than from the front (anterior) or the back (posterior). Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure in which two or more of the vertebrae in the spine are united together so that motion no longer occurs between them eliminating back pain and abnormal movements of the spine.
