Spinal Fusion Overview & Challenges
The spine is one of the most vital parts of the human body. It serves two purposes – provides skeletal support to the trunk and upper half of the body, and protects the spinal cord, which makes all bodily movements possible.
An increasing number of patients will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime. Depending on the severity of the pain and its cause, the patient may require medical attention such as spine surgery. In most cases, spine surgery involves correcting the skeletal structure and maintaining it in the corrected state, frequently referred to as Spinal Fusion.
