Modern surgical procedures can provide an enormous degree of improvement in the quality of patients’ lives. The benefits of surgery can range from pain reduction to life-saving medical intervention, but in all circumstances, having this treatment option available to patients has proven a remarkable boon.
Fusion surgery is one common type of surgical procedure that has shown considerable success in helping patients who are dealing with a wide range of different ailments. This surgical technique involves the use of supplementary bone tissue, which can either be obtained from the patient or from a donor, to gradually fuse two or more bones together using the body’s natural growth processes.
For some, fusion surgery can simply be an effective means of reducing pain in their day-to-day lives; for others, fusion surgery has the potential to dramatically change their lives by correcting genetic or physical deformities. Generally speaking, though, the benefits of fusion surgery tend to be similar regardless of why the patient may have sought it out: it can help to dramatically improve a patient’s qualify of life by reducing pain and increasing mobility and flexibility in some cases. Indeed, in many instances, athletes pursue fusion surgeries in order to be able to continue pursuing their careers.
The following are among the most common types of fusion surgery currently practiced:
These types of surgeries can have tremendous benefits for patients, allowing them to go on to lead healthy, active lives without restrictions on what they can do. However, fusion surgery is often costly, and it can have a lengthy recover period during which patients may not be able to work. In these circumstances, those whose surgeries were necessitated by injuries caused by others may need to take legal action in order to recover compensation for their losses.
