Surgery for Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis surgery is a drastic and invasive option for advanced vertebral slippage conditions. Spondylolisthesis is a condition with multiple possible causes, but similar symptomatic profiles. While most varieties of the condition are not problematic, some can cause moderate pain and related symptoms and others can create truly nightmarish cases of suffering and even spinal instability. It is in these cases that back surgery is usually prescribed as the best or only treatment modality available.

Spondylolisthesis Surgery Procedure

Surgical correction of severely slipped vertebrae is a last resort treatment option. The operations are very invasive and can create many associated health problems. The most common procedure used is one of the many varieties of spinal fusion. Fusion is an operation where the vertebrae are joined together using bone grafts and surgical hardware such as cages, screws, pins and plates. In severe cases of spondylolisthesis, this hardware is often left attached to the operated vertebrae permanently, as a means of reinforcing the fusion procedure.

Fusion is a traumatic operation to endure and can cause degenerative conditions to develop in other surrounding vertebral levels. Spinal fusion should only be considered if there are truly severe symptoms and no other conservative back pain treatment options available. If a fusion procedure is warranted, make sure to find a specialist who can insure the best results possible for your particular condition.

Recommendation on Spondylolisthesis Surgery

While I am usually very anti-surgery, I do recognize that many patients have advanced forms of this condition which require some drastic help. Surgery is truly needed in many of these severe vertebral misalignment conditions. Patients with more common and less severe conditions should not even be considering surgery except in extremely rare instances of obvious pinched nerve or cauda equina syndrome conditions.

Pain due to mild or moderate spondylolisthesis is often misdiagnosed and is actually coming from some other physical or more commonly, psychological source. Your doctor is not likely to inform you of the epidemic proportion of psychosomatic pain syndromes, so it is knowledge that you must learn for yourself. Do everything possible to insure that if you do require surgery, at least it will result in a pain free condition.
