ALIF Spine Surgery

Table of Contents


Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) is a spine surgery that aims to cure pain and other symptoms caused by problems in the low back. This spine surgery involves approaching the spine from the front (anterior) of the body to remove a herniated disc from between two adjacent vertebrae in the lower back (lumbar spine), followed by fusion of the vertebrae. Dr. Saijyot Raut is one of the most renowned doctors for ALIF spine surgery in Mumbai.

Why is ALIF surgery performed?

An ALIF surgery aims to treat disc problems in the lower back and stabilize the spine. ALIF spine surgery in Mumbai is performed to cure the following spinal conditions:

Degenerative disc disease

Degenerative disc diseases refer to the age-related wear and tear of the spine. In this condition, the soft vertebral discs degrade and shrink, which reduces the vertebral gap and causes spinal nerve pinching.


Scoliosis or flatback syndrome is the abnormal curvature of the spine. It is prevalent among kids and adolescents and noticeable only after the significant progression of the disorder.


Spondylolisthesis is a spinal condition that arises when one vertebra slips out of place onto the vertebra below. It leads to severe lower back pain.


It is a disorder that tends to make the spinal structure hard, brittle, and porous, due to which the spinal discs and joints degenerate, causing bone spurs.

What are the advantages of ALIF surgery?

Given below are the primary advantages of an ALIF spine surgery in Mumbai:

  • It allows the surgeon to use a large antibiotic-loaded cement spacer to restore major spine damages with better stability and support during recovery.
  • The anterior incision prevents any damage to the back muscles as it supports the spine.,
  • The frontal incision also makes it easy for the surgeon to avoid damaging the spinal nerves at the back.
  • The L5 vertebra usually slips forward toward the belly and can be easily repositioned from the front.
