Common types of spine surgery include:

  • Spinal Fusion: Surgeons use bone grafts, metal rods and screws to stabilize the spine by fusing together two or more vertebrae. Spinal fusion is used to treat weak or injured vertebrae, slipped or herniated disks and curvature of the spine.
  • Disk Replacement: Disks are located between the vertebrae of the spine. They act as shock absorbers and provide strength and flexibility to the spine. In disk replacement surgery, surgeons implant artificial disks to replace degenerated disks. This surgery is used to treat low back pain
