Long Construct Spinal Fusion

From time to time patients have degenerative changes over several levels causing complex deformity. These patients often require a long construct spinal fusion and in some rare cases patients may require an instrumented spinal fusion from the top of the thoracic spine down to the sacrum. With modern advances in imaging, technology and screw placement these surgeries can be performed.

This is a very long complicated process and is not to be undertaken without a lot of thought and consideration. The recovery time after this type if surgery is quite long as well.

Following any major surgery it is important to follow the instructions given to you afterwards to get the best possible result. For more information see our After Surgery page.
