Lumbar Dynamic Stabilisation

A dynamic stabilisation procedure is a procedure to reinforce your disc without fusing it. It is often used at the top of a lumbar fusion to decrease wear on the upper mobile disc. When a disc has been fused and is no longer moving the discs above and below have to make up for the movement that has been taken away. This can increase the wear and tear at these levels. A dynamic stabiliser is to decrease this wear and tear.

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.
