What Is Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion?

Axial lumbar interbody fusion is a great option for those who have been dealing with pain that radiates from their lumbar spine, the region forming the lower back. The lumbar domain is often the epicenter of degenerative disc disease and other spinal issues. ALIF hinges on the removal of the troublesome disc followed by the fusion of the neighboring vertebrae to instill stability and help alleviate pain. The process is aimed at reducing pain and discomfort in the spine.

The procedure encompasses several pivotal stages, including:

  • Disc Removal: The offending disc is meticulously extracted.
  • Bone Graft Insertion: Following the disc removal, a bone graft is nestled in the disc space, laying the foundation for bone growth between the vertebrae.
  • Fusion: Gradually, the bone graft spearheads the fusion of the adjacent vertebrae, culminating in a consolidated bone structure and alleviated pain.

Our adept team at NJ Spine & Orthopedic helps you navigate through these stages, steering you towards a horizon of relief and enhanced mobility.

How NJ Spine & Orthopedic Champions the Cause of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

The ethos of minimally invasive surgery is deeply ingrained in our approach to axial lumbar interbody fusion. By adopting smaller incisions and leveraging advanced surgical technology, we significantly reduce the tissue trauma conventionally synonymous with spinal surgery. This notably shortens the recovery period, minimizing scarring and postoperative discomfort.

Minimally invasive spine surgery is not merely a surgical approach; it’s a commitment to enhancing the patient’s postoperative life quality. Less tissue damage translates to a swifter recovery, enabling a speedy return to normalcy. The microscopic incisions are a gateway to less postoperative pain, reduced scarring, and a shorter hospital stay.

We harbor a deep understanding of the debilitating impact of chronic back pain on your life and are staunchly committed to restoring your spinal health.
