Spinal fusion surgery is conducted to permanently join two or more bones in the spine which completely eliminates their movement.
A spinal fusion surgery is conducted along with other surgeries such as laminectomy or foraminotomy. It is usually done when the patient suffers with a fracture or severe injury to the spine. In other cases it is conducted when the spine becomes weak due to tumor or infection. Spinal fusion is also conducted to rectify the abnormal curvatures as a result of kyphosis or scoliosis.

Recovery time -
Once surgery is done, it takes somewhere around five to seven days for the patient to recover while staying in the hospital.
An intravenous line is kept intact so as to administer pain medications. The patient also receives physiotherapy in which the usual activities such as sitting, walking and standing are taught under proper guidance. The patient is unable to eat or drink anything for around two to three days and the nutrients are supplied through the very same intravenous line. The patient receives separate home care instructions which need to be duly followed.
