When conservative treatment approaches are not enough to help provide our patients with relief, a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion procedure might be considered.
Alexander Bone and Spine patients can typically expect to spend 1-2 days in the hospital for the treatment. Many of your symptoms can be alleviated right after the procedure, and our patients typically experience additional improvement over time.
Each patient’s case will vary, and all surgery carries some amount of risk, including infection, bleeding, blood clots, nerve damage, bowel, and bladder complications. You should talk with your specialist about potential risks for a TLIF treatment.
If you have questions about the TLIF treatment or would like to consult with Dr. Alexander and the Alexander Bone and Spine team about your condition, make an appointment to speak with us today!
