Interbody fusion using cages was designed as a less invasive method for achieving spinal fusion. We can perform this procedure using either an anterior or posterior approach.
The reasons for this procedure are the same as interbody fusion:
This procedure opens the collapsed nerve canal and lifts pressure away from pinched nerve roots. A bone graft will grow through and around the implants, forming a bone bridge that connects the vertebral bodies above and below.
Patients come to us for degenerative disc disease treatment from Vernon, South Windsor, Manchester, Hartford, Bloomfield, Ellington and surrounding locations.
