Your Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion Plan at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Clifton, NJ
At Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Clifton, NJ, our orthopedic surgeons commonly use a minimally invasive approach with spinal fusions. Unlike a traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgeries offer less bleeding and scarring, less damage to surrounding tissue, and faster recovery.
Your orthopedic surgeon will make an incision to access the surgical area and remove any damaged disc material and place a spacer and cage with bone graft material into the disc space. This device realigns the spine and disc space which decompresses the nerves signaling pain. This bone graft heals to form a solid unit of bone. This type of procedure reduces or fully stops painful movement while restoring alignment and stability to your spine. It can also prevent further damage to nearby nerves, spinal cord and other soft tissues.
