Abstract

The research in this document examines recent innovations in lumbar spinal fusion. Particular emphasis is made on laparoscopic spinal fusion techniques and interbody fixation devices. After doing extensive research, conducting interviews with surgeons and nurses, viewing a surgery, and distributing a questionnaire to postoperative spinal fusion patients, we formulated a patient brochure. At the time of this research, no patient brochures existed that incorporated these recent techniques in treating spinal fusion.
