Dr. Myles Spinal Fusion at the Institute of Spinal Disorders

Spinal fusion is a surgery that joins selected bones in the neck. It is designed to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn decreases pain generated from the joint. While there are many different approaches to conducting a spinal fusion surgery, they all involve adding bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements and to create a fusion which hinders motion at that segment.

There are several types of spinal fusion surgery options, including:

  • Posterolateral gutter fusion
  • Posterior lumber interbody fusion
  • Anterior lumber interbody fusion
  • Anterior/posterior spinal fusion
  • Anterior/posterior cervical fusion

When indicated, a spinal fusion surgical procedure can play an important role to make your back or neck pain history.
