A backbone is an essential part of all vertebrate anatomy. It protects the spinal cord and supports the body in an upright posture.

But gone are the days when surgery was considered a risky affair. Now due to technological advancements and professionally trained spine surgeons, the spine surgery is not at all difficult or risky affair. A new surgical technique known as Spinal fusion is used to join two or more vertebrae. Under this new technique Supplementary bone tissue, either from the patient (autograft) or a donor), is used in conjunction with the body's natural bone growth) processes to fuse the vertebrae. The concept of fusion is similar to that of welding in industry. Spinal fusion surgery, however, does not weld the vertebrae immediately during surgery. Rather, bone grafts are placed around the spine during surgery. The body then heals the grafts over several months similar to healing a fracture which joins, or welds, the vertebrae together.
As Spine fusion requires some highly trained surgeons who are quite meticulous and industrious in nature to handle even the most delicate case of a spinal issue with great care and caution. A careless handling of a spinal surgery can lead to severe repercussions, even making people bedridden for life. So instead of getting scared or inhibited in a distressed situation; trust with a surgeon who has a proven track record of successful spine fusion.
