What is Lumbar Spine Fusion?
The spine is the most important body part in the human body as it supports upper body weight and allows you to move or bend. It consists of 24 vertebrae that are separate from cartilage. When these vertebrae get affected, there will be an abnormal bone movement and instability of the spine, which leads to chronic pain, numbness of spin, weakness in legs, etc.
Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to join two or more vertebrae, that eventually grow into one solid bone. The health conditions like an unstable spine, ruptures in intervertebral discs, joints, nerves, fractures, scoliosis, or deformity can also be treatable with this lumbar spinal fusion surgery. This surgery stops the rupture of painful vertebral segments, which creates discomfort in the lower back and legs.
