The access occurs via the presacral region near the tailbone. The surgery beings with a one-inch incision in the back next to the tailbone. The degenerated disc is removed and bone growth material is inserted in its place that will ultimately ‘fuse’ the spine to restore mobility and alleviate the pain.

The AxiaLIF® implant is inserted to stabilize the vertebrae while fusion is occurring. The surgeon will analyze the problematic area and will adjust the disc height and alignment if necessary.

After the AxiaLIF® procedure has been performed the surgeon will add posterior implants for additional stabilization of your spine. Some of the benefits of this procedure over the other traditional approaches are minimal blood loss, faster recovery times and less post-operative pain.
