Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion-TLIF

A specific spinal fusion procedure, TLIF is designed to provide relief from chronic back pain and prevent possible nerve damage as a result of destabilized vertebrae structure. This can be caused by degenerating, damaged, or deformed spinal structures, particularly disc serving as cushions between vertebrae and protecting the sciatic nerve. This procedure facilitates natural bone growth between vertebrae creating a solid connection minimizing movement between bones. Conducted through the posterior (back), a bone graft is applied to the affected area from the patients pelvis and metal scaffolding provides structure and stability during this process.
