Dallas TX (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Spine Physicians Institute, a team of leading spine surgery experts in Dallas, offers expert lumbar fusion surgery treatment options to its patients. This type of surgery is one available option for patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, Isthmic, degenerative or postlaminectomy spondylolisthesis and scoliosis conditions.

A lumbar fusion surgery is designed to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn should decrease pain generated from the joint. There are many approaches to lumbar spinal fusion surgery, and all involve adding bone graft to an area of the spine to set up a biological response that causes the bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements and create a fusion, thereby stopping the motion at that segment.
The surgeons at the Spine Physicians Institute specialize in several types of spinal fusion surgery options, including:

  •     Posterolateral Fusion (PLDF): the procedure is done through the back. It can be done with or without instrumentation.
  •     Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF/TLIF): the procedure is done from the back and includes removing the disc between two vertebrae and inserting bone into the space created between the two vertebral bodies
  •     Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF): the procedure is done from the front and includes removing the disc between two vertebrae and inserting bone into the space created between the two vertebral bodies
  •     Anterior/Posterior Spinal Fusion (APSF): the procedure is done from the front and the back

A representative from Spine Physicians Institute, Dallas, said, "At each level in the spine, there is a disc space in the front and paired facet joints in the back. Working together, these structures define a motion segment and permit multiple degrees of motion. Two vertebral segments need to be fused together to stop the motion at one segment, so that an L4-L5 (lumbar segment 4 and lumbar segment 5) spinal fusion is actually a one-level spinal fusion.”

The Spine Physicians Institute recommends that patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, Isthmic, degenerative or postlaminectomy spondylolisthesis and scoliosis related schedule an appointment at any of their Dallas, Red Oak, Plano or Irving office locations with one of their expert trained spine specialists so that a detailed analysis of their history, previous treatments and successes along with a detailed look at the symptoms they are having.
