OLIF

Table of Contents

Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) is a procedure that offers a complete, minimally invasive solution for the correction of degenerative and spinal deformity conditions. It involves the removal of disrupted intervertebral disc and bone and fusing of two adjacent spinal vertebrae.

When is OLIF required?

Neck pain can occur in anyone at any time. Sometimes this pain is severe and has an adverse effect on physical and mental health. Fortunately, it can be cured with pain relievers, physical therapy, neck traction, and surgery, depending on the seriousness of the condition.

Degenerative disc disease

Degenerative disc disease is 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.

Disc herniations

A herniated disc is the problem associated with a rubbery disc between the spinal bones. This condition occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tough exterior casing.

Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the shrinking of spaces in the spine that causes compressing of the spinal cord and nerve root exiting each vertebra.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a term for the abnormal curvature of the spine. It is mostly congenital, though it can occur due to trauma too.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis refers to a condition that involves the forward slippage of one vertebral bone in your spine onto the one below it.

What are the advantages of OLIF surgery?

OLIF adopts a lateral approach when compared to traditional spinal fusion techniques, which spares the disruption of major back muscles, ligaments, and bones and preserves back strength. Some other benefits of the Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) surgery in Mumbai are as follows:

  • Less risk of bleeding
  • Less exposure to radiation
  • Reduced surgery time and therefore less risk of blood clots
