Dr. Myles has 22 years of experience in performing various types of spinal fusions.
Spinal fusion is a surgery that joins selected bones in the neck. It is designed to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn decreases pain generated from the joint. While there are many different approaches to conducting a spinal fusion surgery, they all involve adding bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements and to create a fusion which hinders motion at that segment.
There are several types of spinal fusion surgery options, including:
- Posterolateral gutter fusion
- Posterior lumber interbody fusion
- Anterior lumber interbody fusion
- Anterior/posterior spinal fusion
- Anterior/posterior cervical fusion
