Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)

ALIF is a procedure performed by Washington Neurosurgeons specializing in the spine in conjunction with our Vascular Surgeons to help patient with back pain. This special approach allows patient to have “back surgery from the front” where an incision is made on the low abdomen and the abdominal contents are gently moved aside so that an implant can be inserted between the vertebral bones to support the spine. Our Vascular Surgeons move the important structures near the spine aside so that your Neurosurgeon can safely perform the procedure with those structures protected. Please ask your Neurosurgeon if this approach may be right for you.
