XLIF: Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion Surgery in Birmingham and Hoover, Alabama
When spine conditions like disc degeneration or stenosis cause severe, persistent back pain, conservative treatments aren’t always enough to provide symptom relief. In some cases, fusing the spinal vertebrae may be the best option for the patient. XLIF, lateral lumbar interbody fusion, is a surgical procedure to permanently connect two vertebrae, eliminating the vertebral movement that causes back pain.
