Surgical Treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease
Spine Center Atlanta is pleased to offer expert Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion surgery for the treatment of degenerative disc disease. This advanced surgical procedure can be used to treat the back or leg pain that is caused by degenerative disc disease and to stabilize the spine. Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion surgery involves stabilizing the spine by fusing vertebrae together with a bone graft material.
To access the spine, a three to five-inch incision is made in the abdomen. The damaged disc is then partially removed and a metal cage implant filled with bone graft material is inserted into space. Over time, the bone graft material will grow over and around the implant, providing stability to the spine.
Dr. Chappuis and the Orthopaedic spine surgeons at Spine Center Atlanta are highly qualified to perform Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion surgery and have used this advanced surgical procedure to help countless individuals find long-term relief from chronic and acute lower back pain.
