Spinal fusion surgery is performed to prevent friction between 2 or more vertebrae, by fusing them together with a bone graft or synthetic material. By preventing friction between the vertebrae, it can relieve back pain and pressure put on surrounding nerves. The surgery may be performed for a number of reasons, which include repairing broken vertebrae, treating spinal deformities such as scoliosis, and treating a herniated disk or spinal stenosis. A bone graft may be taken from elsewhere in the body to be used to join the vertebrae together, and in some cases donor bone may be used. In some cases, the surgeon may use synthetic material to join the vertebrae together instead of using a bone graft or donor bone. After spinal fusion surgery, the spine will not move in the same way as it previously did. Once the vertebrae have been joined together, the other vertebrae will have an extra strain on them, which may accelerate degeneration.
