What is spinal instrumentation?
Spinal instrumentation is a method of stabilising the spine and facilitating fusion after decompression surgery has been performed. There are a variety of implants that can be used to keep the spine rigid while new bone growth occurs. These include plates, screws, rods, cages, wire, artificial discs and hooks and can be made from titanium, titanium-alloy, stainless steel or non-metallic materials.
