What Is Instrumentation Or Fusion Surgery?

This type of surgery is called “instrumental fusion” among doctors, and is applied to patients diagnosed with an abnormal mobility between their vertebrae; that is, with instability on standing and mobile x-rays. They are very critical operations in which painful spine bones are placed with screws and similar metal devices and thus bones are fused to each other in order to stop the spine motion. While deciding on such surgical options, it is necessary to ensure that the surgeon who will perform the surgery is experienced and that all other surgical options are fully evaluated.

As a result of these surgeries, the spine bones are aimed to be fused together; and for that reason bone obtained from bone banks, and sometimes from another region of the patient’s own body are sometimes placed in the surgical area. These operations are irreversible operations, that is, once they are not successful, it is almost impossible for the patient to be relieved of the complaints with another operation. In addition, fusion of the bones does not allow normal movements, thus resulting in new problems in the adjacent bones and neighboring discs in the long-term.

So, be careful…
