Confusion about Spinal Fusion, Spine Fusion, Spine Fusion Surgery, Back Fusion Surgery, Back Surgery

Spinal Fusion is used to treat spinal instability and alleviate chronic mechanical back pain but many people are unsure of what spinal fusion actually does.  Spinal fusion is surgery to permanently connect two or more vertebrae in your spine, eliminating motion between them.


Spinal fusion involves many techniques designed to mimic the normal healing process of broken bones. During spinal fusion, your surgeon places bone or a bone-like material within the space between two spinal vertebrae. Metal plates, screws and rods may be used to hold the vertebrae all together, so they can heal into one solid unit.


Because spinal fusion surgery immobilizes parts of your spine, it changes the way your spine can move. This places additional stress and strain on the vertebrae above and below the fused portion, and may increase the rate at which those areas of your spine degenerate.

Minimally Invasive Stabilization, MIS

leave a comment »

A procedure that relieves certain painful spine conditions

Minimally invasive stabilization (MIS) at is performed in an outpatient environment for patients who are in search of a minimally invasive approach to spine fusion.

When compared to open fusion procedures, the advantages of minimally invasive stabilization performed at hospitals include:


Currently, Laser Spine Institute offers a few types of minimally invasive stabilization surgical procedures to treat problematic discs that other types of endoscopic spine surgery do not treat.

Minimally invasive stabilization commonly treated conditions:

Less than 3 percent of patients that seek endoscopic spine procedures at are recommended for a minimally invasive stabilization procedure. General anesthesia is used for minimally invasive stabilization surgery at Laser Spine Institute, but the recovery time following surgery is fairly quick, resulting in the patient being able to leave the facility within a few hours postoperatively. The minimally invasive stabilization technique used on a patient will depend on the specific character of the patient’s problem.
