Spinal fusion information and locations in Mexico

Spinal fusion surgery consists of fusing together two or more vertebrae to minimize its movement. This procedure is recommended to treat spine deformities, spine instability, or herniated disc.
When two or more vertebrae become diseased or injured, it can cause chronic pain that limits the range of motion. During the surgery, the neurosurgeon performs the surgery under general anesthesia, so the patient doesn’t feel pain. To access the vertebrae, the specialist does an incision in the neck, back or over the vertebrae, then fuses together the vertebrae using screws, rods, or metal plates, along with bone graft, so they can heal as one unit.
