Who Should Go for the Spinal Fusion Surgery?
  • Spinal fusion procedure decreases your back pain,
    increases mobility, and prevents neurological
    problems like numbness or weakness. It can
    preserve and restores your spine balance, its
    alignment, posture, and stability, effectively in
    the least invasive way possible.
  • Sure it can give a new lease of life for patients
    suffering from chronic back pain for years.
  • But does that mean everyone must choose the
    surgery to relieve the back pain? , No.
  • Though Spinal fusion is an effective surgical
    procedure, it also happens to be the most
    over-prescribed surgical operations in the world
    today. In the majority of the back pain cases,
    Spine Specialists recommend conservative
    non-surgical options like pain medications,
    chiropractic care, physical therapy sessions,
    epidural steroid injections, back braces to help
    you get rid of the back pain. It is only when
    these non-surgical options fail to curb the back
    pain and restore the spine health, spinal fusion
    surgery has resorted.

What is Spinal Fusion Surgery and who is the
right candidate for it?
  • The majority of the chronic back pain conditions
    are caused by the abnormal movement of the small
    bones of the spine, vertebrae. This abnormal
    vertebrae movement can destabilize the spine,
    damage the alignment causing chronic back pain
    and a slew of development problems drastically
    reducing the quality of life of patients. And
    the Spinal fusion surgery is performed by the
    spinal surgeons to get rid of this back pain by
    fusing the two or more vertebrae as one strong
    bone using bone graft and surgical hardware. This
    process stabilizes and aligns the spine, restores
    the disc space, and prevents further damage to
    the spinal cord and nerves.

Who should go for Spinal Fusion?
  • Spinal Fusion is considered the best treatment
    procedure for Scoliosis, Spondylolisthesis,
    Degenerative disk diseases, Spinal stenosis,
    Spinal fractures tumours, Herniated disk
    Spinal deformities. But whether spinal fusion is
    the perfect treatment for you or not, depends
    upon several factors that your spine
    specialist will discuss with you in detail. In
    general, spinal fusion surgery is recommended if
  • The back pain is chronic.
  • If the spinal condition is caused by the abnormal
    movement of two or three vertebrae.
  • Other non-surgical treatment options like
    physical therapy, braces, and medications were
    not able to show any further improvements in the
    condition.
  • Spinal fusion surgery is the only option that can
    improve the quality of life of the patient.

  • Though spinal fusion is the most effective
    treatment to get rid of chronic back pain, spinal
    surgeons in U.K or any other part of the world
    for that matter recommend non-surgical treatment
    options to cure the back pain. In case these
    non-surgical options fall short of improving the
    condition, spinal fusion is always the next best
    option.
  • Todays spinal fusion procedures offer a
    minimally invasive way to surgically fuse the
    vertebrae to get rid of the pain in least
    possible time. There are only a few spinal
    specialists in U.K with extensive experience and
    expertise in performing minimally invasive spinal
    fusion surgeries and Dr. Jwalant Mehta is one of
    them.
