Video: Lumbar Spinal Fusion for Fracture

Actual Lumbar Spinal Fusion

Although the background of this patient is not revealed in the Video it is clearly a trauma as there is discussion of a fracture and whether the patient will regain use of his legs. I am showing this video so those who have not seen spinal surgery can get a “feel” for just how it’s done and the tools that are used. Warning to those with a weak stomach; this is very graphic. Note the use of force and the instruments used to place the rods and bone grafts.
