Spondylolisthesis surgery is a spinal fusion of the lumbar vertebra and the sacrum. In some cases rods and/or screws are used to hold the vertebra in place during the healing process. There are many risks associated with spinal surgery. Your orthopaedic specialist will work with you to explore all of your options and identify the most effective and least invasive method possible while ensuring your child reaches an optimum level of recovery.
