Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion Treatments at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ
The spine specialist and orthopedic surgeons at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ always exhaust all surgical treatments before turning to a minimally invasive spine surgery to solve your back pain. Fusions can be performed to prevent painful movement between the fused vertebrae. At Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ, we offer 5 different types of spine fusions:
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF), also called, TLIF, at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ are used to decompress or remove the pressure from the spinal cord and nerves, re-stabilize the spine, and prevent further movement and degeneration at the joints in question. All of the mechanics of this procedure should reduce pain and nerve irritation.
Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF), also called PLIF, at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ are used to remove pain-causing spinal discs via the back of your body and replaces it with spacer and bone graft material allowing the bones to grow together. PLIF is an effective method to decrease pain, corrections of any spinal deformity, and improved stability.
Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (XLIF), also called XLIF, at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ are used to remove the intervertebral disc in the lumbar spine via the side of your body rather than the front or back. Then a spacer and and bone graft material is implanted between the two adjoining vertebrae to stabilize the spine and alleviate lower back pain.
Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF), also called ALIF, at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ are used to remove all or part of a herniated disc from the spine from the front of your body. This approach allows the back muscles and nerves to remain undisturbed. Then the vertebrae are fused together to give the spine stability.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF), also called ACDF, at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ are used to remove a damaged disc to relieve spinal cord or nerve root pressure, alleviating the corresponding pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling. This procedure involves both a discectomy (the removal of damaged or herniated discs) and a spinal fusion to allow for parts of the spinal bone to fuse together and provide more stability in the spine.
