Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (XLIF)
The ADR procedure is an alternative option to a Fusion surgery. This procedure involves replacing a degenerated lumbar or cervical disc with an artificial implant designed to mimic a natural healthy disc. The purpose of the ADR procedure is to accomplish motion preservation, near normal distribution of stress along the spine and restoration of pre-degenerative disc height. Effectiveness: We have registered a significant reduction in lumbar or cervical pain in more than 95% of cases.
Patients treated using the XLIF procedure often experience shorter operative times, and shorter recoveries. XLIF is useful for a variety of spinal and back conditions including:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Slipped discs or ruptured discs
- Recurrent disc herniation Herniated lumbar discs
