What is Spinal Fusion?

The spine is one of the most essential parts of the human body; without it we wouldn't be able to function. Unfortunately when spinal injuries occur, it causes a series of complications throughout our entire body. The spine is responsible for posture, head movement, and upper body movement.

The spine is made up of individual vertebrae, and each vertebrae is independent of each other. While this is necessary for a healthy moving and functional spine, there are patients who can benefit from the joining of two or more vertebrae to relieve pain. This procedure is called spinal fusion.
