Front and Back Spinal Fusion in Atlanta

Envision Orthopaedics & Spine is Georgia’s trusted expert when it comes to the front and back spinal fusion surgery. Spine Fusion ExampleAnterior/Posterior 360° is a surgical procedure that can be used to stabilize the spine. It involves fusing both the front and back of the spine. This two-step process starts with an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) in the front of the spine.

At this point, a Posterior Instrumented Lumbar Fusion using a bone graft and instrumentation is performed on the back of the spine, for added stability.

The bone graft may be an autograph (taken from your own body) or an allograph (taken from a bone bank). The instrumentation may include metal rods, screws, or hooks. Once the vertebrae have been surgically stabilized, abnormal motion is stopped and function is restored to the spinal nerves.

Double board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. James L. Chappuis, is highly qualified to perform Anterior/Posterior 360° Surgery. Using this advanced surgical procedure, he has helped countless patients in Atlanta and throughout Georgia achieve increased spinal stability, improved function, and a better overall quality of life.
