Fusion and Fusion Alternatives

There are pros and cons to every treatment option and your options for back pain often depend on individual factors such as your health, your type of pain, and what course of action your physician feels would have the greatest benefit and success for you.


Fusion provides stabilization for spine instability or deformity. Different approaches have different hardware requirements and implants.

The best approach will be recommended for each patient by the surgeon for each individual patient’s deformity and instability.

Techniques have come and gone and continue to evolve. Fusion, while successful for a period of time, will never-the-less create adjacent level deterioration over time.

Fusion Alternatives

Coflex dynamic stabilization – Stabilization without fusion, and allows motion is considered less invasive but as effective without burning bridges that a fusion produces.
