TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion)

When the spine’s discs wear out there is often associated pain and collapse of that disc causing nerves to become pinched.  Pain from pinched nerves or arthritis to the disc can be severe and disabling.  This is a problem that can be fixed with a new approach.  It is minimally invasive and we have assembled one of the top teams in the country for just this procedure.  Why?  It is a minimally invasive method to fix your problem and we wanted to be the most successful at it.  99% our TLIF patients go home the same day of the surgery. Why is this form of fusion so revolutionary?  The translateral approach to the damaged disc is muscle sparing, meaning there is no need for cutting or tearing muscle.  We use a very small incision to replace your worn out disc.  We are one the most advanced centers in the country for this outpatient technique.  Because of these special techniques, we are able to get you back to work and living a life free of debilitating pain quickly and efficiently.
