During spinal fusion, your surgeon locks together, or fuses, some of the bones in your spine. This limits the movement of these bones, which may help relieve your pain. Even so, you may feel more flexible after a fusion because you can move with less pain.
Types of spinal fusion surgery are:
Cervical Fusion: Fusion for the neck
Lumbar Fusion: Fusion for the lower back
Fusion can be done from the front (anterior) side of the body or the back (posterior) side of the body. Your surgeon will decide which is best for you.
