Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) with Instrumentation

Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF)

PLIF is generally used to treat back or leg pain caused by degenerative disc disease.  The surgeon will stabilize the spine by fusing  vertebrae together with bone graft material.


Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

A transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (called a TLIF) is essentially like an extended PLIF. It was developed in response to some of the technical problems with a PLIF procedure. The main difference between the two spine fusion procedures is that the TLIF approach to the disc space is expanded by removing one entire facet joint (whereas a PLIF is usually done on both sides by only taking a portion of each of the paired facet joints).
