A lumbar fusion consists of a fixation between adjacent vertebrae in order to prevent any movement that may be lead to back pain. In order to achieve that goal, materials such as pedicle screws and cage need to be implanted and be implemented by bone graft that may either come from the patient (autograft), from a bone bank or from biologic source (allograft).
- Vertebral instability : due to spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, iatrogenic or tumours.
- Failed Back
Fixation or arthodesis of the spine can be performed via an anterior, lateral or posterior approaches depending on the pathology and the surgical goal that need to be achieved. `
We are trained to propose all these surgical strategies that help us to treat a large spectrum of spinal pathologies by minimizing as much as possible the risks and the morbidity of the procedure.
In this matter we use a minimally invasive surgical technique (also called minimally invasive surgery) that helps to reduce the postoperative pain and the patient recovery delay. Using the latest imaging technique such as 3D radioscopy, navigation and endoscopy are mandatory to reduce the risk of screw misplacement and the rate of irradiation.
