A lumbar fusion is an operation to stabilize the lower back by creating bony bridges between at least two vertebrae and eliminating motion between them. This can be accomplished by fusing the vertebral bodies in front (anterior fusion) or by fusing the facet joints and lamina in the back (posterior fusion).
Lumbar microsdiscectomy is a surgical treatment for the lumbar spine (lower back). The discs are the shock absorbing cushions in between each of the lumbar vertebrae. Discs can become injured or worn resulting in a herniation. Sometimes, this is referred to this as a slipped or ruptured disc.
