Spinal Fusion in Glen Rock, NJ

Oasis Orthopedic & Spine offers Spinal Fusion in Glen Rock, NJ

The orthopedic surgeons at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ pride themselves on exhausting all surgical treatments before turning to a spine surgery to solve back pain symptoms. Spinal fusions are used to prevent painful movement between vertebrae. At Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ, we offer 5 different types of Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion:

TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusions) at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ are used to decompress pressure on nerves in the spine and spinal cord, stabilize the spine, and prevent further damage.

PLIF (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusions) at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ decreases in pain, corrects spinal deformity, and improves stability of the spine by accessing the area through the back to remove pain-causing spinal discs. These discs are replaced with a spacer and bone graft material allowing the bones to grow together.

XLIF (Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusions) at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ are used to remove the intervertebral disc in the lumbar spine via the side of your body rather than the front or back. A metal, plastic, or bone graft is placed between the two adjoining vertebrae, as well as a spacer, to stabilize the spine and alleviate lower back pain.

ALIF (Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusions) at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ remove all or part of the impeding soft tissue such as a herniated disc from the spine from the front of your body. Then the vertebrae are fused together to give the spine stability. This approach allows the back muscles and nerves to remain undisturbed.

ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ are used to remove a damaged disc that is pressing on a spinal nerve and spinal cord. This alleviates the corresponding pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling. This procedure involves both a discectomy (the removal of damaged discs) and a spinal fusion to allow for parts of the spinal bone to fuse together and provide more stability in the spine.

At Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Glen Rock, NJ, spinal fusions are only performed when all other treatments have been exhausted. Fusion surgeries involve fusing using a spacer and a cage with bone graft, allowing bones to heal forming a solid unit.

It can also prevent further damage to nearby nerves, spinal cord, and other soft tissues.
