It refers to a procedure that involves fusing the lumbar spine from the back. An incision is made in the lower part of your back. Muscles are then retracted to expose the spine. Fusion most often is combined with decompression. Pedicle screws are places into the vertebral bodies for stabilization and connected with rods. Bone graft is then laid on the sides along the edges to achieve fusion.
