Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF)
Posterior Lumbar Fusion
Posterior lumbar fusion is a surgical procedure to join two or more adjacent vertebrae in the lumbar or lower back region in order to stabilize the spine and relieve pain. The procedure fixes the vertebral bones in an ideal position and limits movement that can cause pain. It is recommended when symptoms affect your quality of life and are not relived by conservative treatment.
