The MIS TLIF surgery stands for Minimally Invasive Surgery for Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion. A keyhole incision is made in the impacted lumbar region of the spine which is accessed through the posterior back.
During MIS TLIF surgery, the lumbar vertebral bones are fused into one composite unit by removing the intervertebral disc, which acts as a cushioning between the two spine segments, stabilizing the spinal column.
The TLIF surgery method is used to treat different spine disorders, including:
Our MIS TLIF Surgery in Mumbai aims at decompressing nerves and stabilizing the vertebral column by fusion of lumbar vertebrae.
TLIF surgery, Dr. Raut stabilizes the spine by fusing vertebrae with the help of bone spacers. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure to replace damaged or fractured bone. The TLIF procedure is generally coupled with lumbar decompression and facetectomy procedures, done on the symptomatic side( the problematic side of the back).
First, the damaged disc between the vertebral portion is removed. Then, an interbody spacer called a cage (which promotes fusion and restores spinal alignment) is implanted into the intervertebral space.
The Minimally invasive TLIF surgery is competent in nerve decompression, and patients are likely to resume their daily activities such as walking, sitting, exercising, long hours after this procedure. This minimally invasive surgery is offered over laminotomy or simple decompression procedures that cannot fuse the spine bones.
Dr. Saijyot Raut is one of the most renowned spine specialists in Mumbai, who treats spine disorders diligently and compassionately and supervises post-surgery cases. The MIS TILF surgeries are intricate and require immense knowledge and skill to perform a precise surgery. Typically, all surgeries have some general risks. MIS surgeries, too, have risks but are very less quantum. Dr. Raut and the team minimize surgical risks through competent surgery handling and the use of the latest technologies.
