Am I a candidate for spinal fusion surgery?
This surgery is recommended for patients that suffer from medical conditions like spinal stenosis, severe scoliosis, vertebrae fractures, infections, herniated disks, and spinal tumors. We recommend you to refer to one of our professional doctors for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
How do I prepare for spinal fusion surgery?
You will have some blood tests and x-rays done days before your surgery, and you might be asked to stop taking some medications. We also recommend asking your doctor if it’s safe to eat or drink before the procedure.
Will I Have my full mobility back?
Your original range of motion will be limited after the surgery, as your vertebrae will be held to one another. However, most patients will not be able to distinguish how their movement has been affected.
How will recovery be like?
Recovery tends to take longer when compared to other surgeries, this is because the body needs to adapt to its new mobility. A rehabilitation program will be recommended by the surgeon, it will help you to properly recover and to enhance your strength.
