Please see the index below for a list of all our articles on Spinal Fusion.

An anterior/posterior lumbar fusion procedure fuses both the front and back of the spine, provides a high degree of stability for the spine, and creates a large surface area for bone fusion to occur.

A bone graft is real bone or bone-like tissue that is added between two vertebrae to help them fuse into a single bony bridge.


Synthetic bone graft substitutes are man-made alternatives to real bone tissue. They allow for bone growth on their surface, and then they are resorbed by the body.

Bone stimulators promote bone healing through low-level electrical or ultrasound stimulation, aiding in fusion recovery.
