Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion is generally used to treat back or leg pain caused by degenerative disc disease. The surgeon will stabilize the spine by fusing vertebrae.* The Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion is similar to the Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion , except that the disc space is fused by approaching the spine through the abdomen instead of through the lower back.

All types of back surgery require surgical skill and a comprehensive treatment plan for recovery, but not all spine surgery is straight-forward. Some are more complex, meaning that they are harder to perform and require the most skilled and experienced spinal specialists and surgeons.
By nature, surgery will always have a level of risk, especially when it comes to complex spinal surgery. Even if you have the best, world-renowed spine surgeon, certain outcomes may not be achieved. In this event, you may benefit from having revision surgery.
If you are suffering from neck or back pain from degenerative disc disease (DDD) but aren’t responding to noninvasive treatments or medication, you may qualify for degenerative spine surgery.
A type of surgery that focuses on the bones of your spine (backbone) is called Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS). This surgery involves smaller incisions compared to that of a standard spine surgery, causing less impact on nearby muscles and other tissues.*
Robot-guided spine surgery can be beneficial for patients suffering from back pain or neck pain. Using this type of surgery allows for spine surgeons to use less invasive surgical procedures using smaller incisions and faster recovery times.*
We make your life easier by resolving your spinal issue, but also by making the process as painless as possible as well.*
