What Happens After Spinal Fusion Surgery?

N2 - Background context: Degenerative spine disease will become an increasing health problem, and a significant number of patients will be considered for surgery. Spinal surgeries have evolved since the last decades, and there is a positive impact on the clinical outcomes. Few works in the literature have reviewed the outcome compared with large joint replacement surgery, which is considered a benchmark for operative restoration of patients' quality of life. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate if spinal fusion can return patients' health-related quality of life to that of age-matched population norms and yield outcomes comparable with those of total hip and knee joint replacement. Study design: This is a prospective cohort study. Patient sample: The sample consists of 100 consecutive patients who were enrolled between December 1997 and January 2007. Outcome measures: The 12-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-12) was chosen for outcome measurement. Methods: All patients underwent wide decompressive laminectomy and single-level posterior lumbar interbody fusion for spinal stenosis associated with degenerative spondylolisthesis. Results: The preoperative and postoperative physical component summary (PCS)-12 scores of the spinal fusion patients were comparable with those of both the total knee and hip replacement patients. The mean improvement in PCS-12 scores after spine surgery was 11 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 9-14, p

I’ve developed the Lumbar Fusion Exercise Program which helps your client’s decrease lower back pain and strengthen their lower back after lumbar fusion surgery.

Has Life Back After Scoliosis Surgery;

There has been a significant increase in the number of people who undergo spinal fusion surgery to treat back and leg pain, but a suggests that spinal fusion may not be the most appropriate treatment for many of these people. The goal of the study was to compare pain relief and the ability to walk without pain in patients with spinal stenosis or stenosis and spondylolisthesis. In spinal stenosis, the spinal canal becomes narrower, pressing on the spinal cord and nerves that connect to the arms and legs. In spondylolisthesis, one or more vertebrae slide out of alignment, compressing the spinal cord and nerve roots.

I give you tones of information on lumbar spinal fusion and exercise that you can use with your client right way.

The study compared the results of laminectomy, during which the surgeon removes some of the bone pressing on the spinal cord and nerves, and laminectomy and spinal fusion, during which the surgeon places a bone graft held in place by metal screws and rods to stabilize the spine after the laminectomy. Spinal fusion is a more complex type of surgery that carries additional risks to the patient and requires a longer operating time and more time in the hospital. Study participants who had spinal fusion were in the hospital for 7.4 days compared to 4.1 days for those who only had a laminectomy. Spinal fusion patients also had more bleeding during surgery and twice as many post-operative wound infections.
