TLIF Spine Surgery

TLIF Spine Surgery in Dubai at Emirates Hospitals Group. Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) is a surgical procedure used to treat lower back pain caused by conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and other spinal conditions. In this procedure, the surgeon accesses the affected spinal segment through a small incision in the patient’s back and removes the damaged intervertebral disc and replaces it with an interbody cage filled with bone graft. The bone graft stimulates new bone growth, which helps to fuse the two adjacent vertebral bodies and stabilizes the spinal segment.

Procedure for TLIF Surgery

The TLIF procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. The patient may need to stay in the hospital for several days after the surgery to monitor their progress and manage pain.

Risk Factors of TLIF Surgery

Risk factors associated with TLIF surgery include infection, blood loss, nerve damage, and failure of the spinal fusion. In rare cases, patients may experience persistent pain or instability after the surgery, which may require additional treatment.

Causes of Lower Back Pain that leads to TLIF

The causes of lower back pain that may require TLIF surgery include degenerative disc disease, in which the intervertebral discs begin to break down and collapse, resulting in pain and decreased mobility. Spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal narrows and puts pressure on the spinal cord, can also lead to lower back pain. Spondylolisthesis, in which one vertebral body slips out of place on top of the adjacent vertebral body, can also cause lower back pain.
