Indications for Spinal Fusion

There are some indications for spinal fusion: degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, fracture and tumor.
Dr. Georgiy Brusovanik, Spine Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, explains in cases of tumors, after they are removed, it creates instability and it’s reasonable to do a fusion surgery where physicians place screws above and below and keep things in place.
Spondylolisthesis is the most common indication that Dr. Brusovanik sees in his practice.
