Understanding Spinal Fusion Surgery

Spinal fusion surgery involves the fusion of two or more vertebrae to form a single solid structure. The surgery aims to improve stability, correct deformity, and reduce pain. It's recommended for patients with conditions like degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, or spinal stenosis. It's essential for patients to understand that spinal fusion surgery typically involves a significant recovery period, and the success rate can vary depending on their overall health and the nature of their spinal condition.

Preparing for Spinal Fusion Surgery

Preparation for spinal fusion surgery typically includes a comprehensive health assessment to ensure the patient is a suitable candidate for the procedure. This might involve imaging studies, such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. It's also critical for patients to prepare for a period of recovery post-surgery, which will include physical therapy and possibly changes to their daily routine.

Spinal Fusion Surgery

The spinal fusion procedure involves the use of a bone graft to cause two vertebral bodies to grow together into one long bone. Bone grafts are placed around the spine during surgery. Over time, the body heals the grafts, creating a fusion of the vertebrae. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours.

Spinal Fusion Surgery Recovery

After the surgery, patients typically stay in the hospital for a few days before they're discharged. Full recovery can take several months as the body needs time to heal and for the bone graft to fuse the vertebrae together. Physical therapy plays a key role in helping patients regain strength and flexibility.

The Costs of Spinal Fusion Surgery

The cost of spinal fusion surgery in Thailand typically ranges from $7,000 to $10,000. However, the final price can vary depending on the specific medical facility and the patient's unique situation. This does not include the costs of travel and accommodation.
