Minimal Access Lumbar Spinal Fusion

This is an area of my specialist interest, I have a series of well over 50 patients treated successfully for low back pain with this technique.

It is possible to perform a lumbar spinal fusion through several small horizontal portals, 1-2 cm in length, thus avoiding a long incision and dissection of the muscle from the bone of the spine.

This gives better results early on, with proven :

1) Shorter length of stay in hospital following low back surgery

2) Quicker recovery times after operation

3) Faster return to work during recovery from lumbar surgery

4) Lower blood loss during the operation and faster recovery from fusion surgery

5) Lower infection rates
 minimally invasive surgery for low back painMr Fagan's patients are normally discharged the following day after their fusion surgery.

Recovery and rehabilitation is much quicker than open lumbar fusion surgery, with some of his self employed patients returning to work within 4 weeks.
The usual recovery time following lumbar spinal fusion or TLIF can be 3 months!

X-ray guidance is used throughout the procedure (see left) to ensure optimal placement of the instrumentation.

If you are insured or self funding your surgery and have been offered open surgery with long recovery times, Dan Fagan is happy to offer a second opinion as to whether minimally invasive surgery is suitable for you.
