Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIS – TLIF)

Those patients with certain issues affecting the lumbar spine or lower back are great candidates for TLIF. Some of the common conditions that can be addressed using TLIF are:
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Nerve Compression Causing Lower Back Pain
  • Other issues affecting the Lumbar Spine.
How Does MIS TLIF Work?
Spinal fusion surgery is a process which involves the fusion of 2 or more vertebrae, in the event the disc in between is experiencing some type of damage, degeneration, or disease. When this occurs, the disc must be removed, and a spacer device must be put in its place in order for the two vertebrae to fuse together, and alleviate any pain, discomfort or degeneration.
