Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion is a mouthful, so let’s break down exactly what it means. Transforaminal means “through the foramen,” an area in your spinal canal. Lumbar means lower back, interbody refers to the bone grafts that are placed between two vertebral bodies and fusion speaks to the spinal stabilization that takes place. When performed with a laparoscopic operation, muscles of the spine can be moved rather than cut to access the foramen, which leads to a quicker recovery time. Dr. Sinicropi has performed the transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion operation on a number of patients, and it has helped them regain stability in their spine. An unstable spine can lead to disc herniation, pinched nerves, disc degeneration and much more, so talk to a spine specialist if you’ve been told you are dealing with spinal instability.
