Interbody Fusion with Cages
What Is Interbody Spinal Fusion Surgery With Cages?
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.
Why is it done?
The reasons for this procedure are the same as interbody fusion:
- Remove the degenerative disc
- Separate the two vertebral bodies, as they were before the disc degenerated
- Keep them in that position
