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
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Recurrent disc herniation Herniated lumbar discs
