Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Spine problems may cause severe pain and discomfort. Degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis and other back conditions may require spinal surgery to repair damage or reinforce the spine. Nevertheless, chronic lower back pain can disrupt normal activity and may gradually worsen over time. Posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF), a minimally invasive surgery, is performed on the posterior spine where small incisions are made to enter the spinal cavity and fuse two vertebrae together using bone graft material. This technique has proven very successful for many chronic back pain sufferers. Talk to one of the highly qualified spine surgeons at Florida Hospital to find out if posterior lumbar interbody fusion is right for you.
