  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons perform hundreds of spinal fusions.
  • Advanced techniques. State-of-the-art imaging technology helps Mayo physicians precisely diagnose your back problems. Mayo surgeons can perform spinal fusion from the back, front or side of the spine, and have access to the newest varieties of bone-fusing materials. They employ advanced imaging and brain-monitoring techniques during spinal fusion surgeries, which help improve safety and surgical outcomes. Minimally invasive approaches are selected, when appropriate.
  • Team approach. People who need spinal fusion sometimes need other types of back surgery at the same time. Mayo Clinic's integrated practice gives you access to all the experts needed to solve your problems.
  • Efficient care. In many cases you can be evaluated and have surgery in just a few days.
