What is a Transforminal Lumbar interbody fusion?

Our surgeons at Advanced Neurosurgery have performed thousands of minimally invasive lumbar fusions under the microscope

A Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIS TLIF) is an innovative surgical procedure used for stabilizing your lumbar vertebrae – the spinal bones of your low back. Over the last decade, surgeons have increasingly used MIS TLIF over traditional open TLIF surgery to help relieve back pain from degenerative disk disease, lower spine misalignments, and resolve symptoms of lumbar disk herniation like numbness and tingling in the buttocks and legs.
