Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure used to correct problems with the small bones in the spine (vertebrae). It is essentially a "welding" process. The basic idea is to fuse together two or more vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone. This is done to eliminate painful motion or to restore stability to the spine.
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing lumbar spinal fusion procedures.
