Low back pain is an extremely common condition in the U.S. There are many treatment modalities available to the typical low back pain patient but when conservative care fails, often times it is surgical care that brings eventual relief. Infrequently, surgical care involves extensive surgery and reconstruction of the spine including spinal fusion. When this is required it is important that your surgeons are able to discuss and offer the multitude of surgical options available for each patient’s specific pathology. At Fourth Corner Neurosurgical Associates, our surgeons are trained in all of the latest, advanced surgical procedures including lateral lumbar fusion, traditional TLIF and PLIF procedures, SI joint fusion, pelvic fixation and fusion, ALIF fusion along with myriad non-fusion procedures.
Please make sure to discuss all options with your surgeon including what is best for you.
