Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion or TLIF is one of the latest and highly skilled spine surgery which aims to fuse vertebrae together with the help of bone grafting. SaiShree with a strong conviction of deploying technologies for better treatments offers this highly sophisticated spine surgery in Pune and paves way for pain free back.
Who needs this procedure?
Our Spine specialist doctors in Pune recommend TLIF for patients suffering from lower back pain due to the following medical conditions:
- Spinal stenosis
- Lumbar canal stenosis
- Nerve compression
How is the procedure carried out?
As the phrase “Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody” suggests, the procedure is essentially about inserting a bone graft between two vertebrates through an opening in the lower back. The damaged disc is removed through small vertical incisions made in the back and subsequently a bone graft is placed inside the empty space to relieve the pressure in the nerve roots. As this is one of the minimally invasive procedure, recovery is much faster and the patients can even go back home after few days of hospitalization.
SaiShree Hospital brings this latest technology for the benefit of patients who otherwise are experiencing acute lower back pain undergoing severe difficulties in carrying out daily chores. Our spine specialists have rich experience in treating disc degeneration and this is very much evident through the huge number of successful surgeries carried out by them.
