A surgical procedure done to correct scoliosis. In this procedure, the vertebrae in the spine are surgically joined.
the surgical joining of two or more adjacent vertebrae using bone fragments; used to help severe back pain or prevent damage to the spinal cord
A surgical treatment for back pain in which the disc between two adjacent vertebrae is removed. The two vertebrae are then fused together using bone graft and instrumentation.
A surgical procedure to permanently join vertebral bones, this is a major operation. The surgeon permanently connects two or more bones to preventing movement. This is the same as an arthrodesis.
A surgical procedure to permanently unite two or more vertebrae in the spine so that there is no longer motion occurring between them.
Surgical fusion of two or more vertebrae for remedial immobilization of the spine.
correction of an unstable part of the spine by joining two or more vertebrae; usually done surgically but sometimes done by traction or immobilization
a major surgical operation to join two or more vertebrae together, which are the bones, which make up the spine
an operation in which the problem vertebrae are permanently joined together
The practice of removing a disc and fusing the two adjacent vertebrae together into a single unflexing unit.
Operative method of strengthening and limiting motion of the spinal column. Can be performed with a variety of metal instruments and bone grafts, or bone grafts alone.
A process in which the disc and cartilage is removed from between the vertebrae, and bone grafts (often harvested from the pelvis) are placed between or alongside the vertebrae to join the bones together.
Surgery to join two spinal bones and make the back more stable.
the surgical joining of two more vertebrae together, usually with bone grafts and hardware. The resulting fused vertebrae are stable but immobile. Spinal fusion is used as a treatment for spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis.
an operation to make the spine stronger or straighter
Surgical fixation of an unstable segment of the spine.
A common surgical procedure in which the vertebrae in the painful segment of the spine are "fused" together through some form of bone graft or bone substitute.
A surgical procedure to permanently join bone by interconnecting two or more vertebrae in order to prevent motion (see Arthrodesis).
Spinal fusion, also known as spondylosyndesis is a surgical technique used to combine two or more vertebrae. Supplementary bone tissue (either autograft or allograft) is used in conjunction with the body's natural osteoblastic processes. This procedure is used primarily to eliminate the pain caused by motion of the vertebrae by immobilizing the vertebrae themselves.
