TLIF: Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion


TLIF is generally used to treat back or leg pain caused by degenerative disc disease. The surgeon will stabilize the spine by fusing vertebrae together with bone graft material.

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Spinal fusion is a technique used to stabilize the spinal bones or vertebrae. The goal of lumbar fusion is to create a solid bridge of bone between two or more vertebrae. Spinal fusion may be recommended when the natural disc space has decreased or the spine is unstable. The procedure can be performed through a traditional open incision or a minimally invasive procedure depending on the patient and the condition to be treated. Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion is performed under general anesthesia.
