Introduction

Orthopedic surgeons often perform a procedure known as vertebral fixation to treat various spinal conditions. This surgical procedure aims to provide stability to the spine and alleviate pain for patients.

Why Vertebral Fixation?

Vertebral fixation is typically performed for the following reasons:

1. Spinal Instability: Conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or severe fractures can cause instability in the spine. Vertebral fixation helps stabilize the spine and prevent further damage.

2. Spinal Deformities: Conditions like scoliosis or kyphosis result in abnormal curvatures of the spine. Vertebral fixation can help correct these deformities and restore normal spinal alignment.

3. Spinal Tumors or Infections: In cases where a tumor or infection is causing structural problems in the spine, vertebral fixation may be necessary after the removal of the diseased tissue.

Procedure

During vertebral fixation, the surgeon uses metal rods, screws, and plates to immobilize the affected vertebrae. This prevents movement in the problematic area, allowing the spine to heal and reducing pain for the patient.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Post-surgery, patients typically engage in physical therapy to regain strength and mobility. The recovery period varies depending on the patient’s overall health and the complexity of the surgery.

Conclusion

A vertebral fixation is a valuable tool in an orthopedic surgeon’s arsenal, providing relief and improved quality of life for patients with various spinal conditions. As with any surgical procedure, patients need to discuss the risks and benefits with their healthcare provider.
