Over 300,000 people have a spinal fusion every year.

Most can
be avoided.

Beyond Fusions: Understanding Your Risks and Options

Spinal fusions are too often recommended for spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, fractures, or herniations, with many doctors presenting them to patients as the universal treatment for these conditions.

While fusions and other high-risk procedures have been a standard treatment for a variety of spinal issues, these are heavily overperformed, often further damaging the spinal structure and leading to the need for more surgeries.

Why are fusions overperformed?

Each month, 3 out of 5 patients who visit our office have been recommended for a fusion when it was not needed. The reason is that this high-risk procedure is performed so often comes down to a few key things:

Patient Blind Spots

Most patients have not been informed about more effective and advanced techniques available to them. Therefore, when told they need a fusion or other high-risk surgery, they often believe they have no other option.

Inaccurate or Incomplete Diagnosis

Doctors who are time constrained or lack deep specialized knowledge often miss crucial details and misinterpret symptoms, leading to misguided treatment decisions.

Limited Expertise

Only a handful of doctors possess the advanced techniques, extensive training, and extensive experience required to perform truly minimally invasive micro-decompression and disc regeneration. Dr. Robert Biscup is proud to be one of these doctors and has dedicated his life to teaching, training, and helping patients restore mobility and quality of life without damaging hardware.
