Hello. Well, how does lumbar spinal fusion surgery work, uh? Basically spinal fusion consists of the fusion of two or more vertebrae. It is used to ease the pain of painful vertebrae, by stopping their motion. According to spine-health.com, it can be performed in three different ways that are: 'Adding bone graft to a segment of the spine; Set up a biological response that causes the bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements to create a bone fusion; The boney fusion - which results in one fixed bone replacing a mobile joint - stops the motion at that joint segment.'.
