Stabilization / fusion surgery
Before our specialists recommend spine fusion (spondylodesis / stiffening of spine), all therapy alternatives to cure chronic back pain, e.g., endoscopic nucleotomy, endoscopic abrasion or disc prosthesis surgery (ADR), are considered. But there are some spine problems that can only be solved with a fusion. This holds for patients suffering from listhesis or those that underwent multiple spine surgeries – for them fusion is often the last rescue.
The illustration shows an example of a stabilization with rods and screws granting permanent stabilization of vertebral bodies.
