What is disc fusion?
A disk fusion is a surgery performed to link together individual segments, or vertebrae, within the spine. The spinal column, or backbone, is made up of individual bones called vertebrae. These bones are stacked together. Between each of the vertebrae is a soft cushion called a disc. The disc spaces allow each vertebrae to bend slightly; this motion allows us to bend forward and arch backwards. A spine fusion is a surgery that is done to link together two or more vertebrae. When there is a problem with the vertebrae (often a problem with the disc space), your doctor may recommend a spine fusion to eliminate the motion that occurs within that portion of the spine. By linking together the vertebrae, your doctor is trying to eliminate the source of your back problem. Spinal fusion may be recommended for:
- Abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis or kyphosis)
- Injury to the spinal vertebrae
- Protrusion of the cushioning disc between vertebrae (slipped disc, herniated nucleus pulposus)
- Weak or unstable spine caused by infections or tumors
