Lumbar Disc Injuries with Initial Double Level Discectomy and Fusion Surgery
Lumbar Disc Injuries with Initial Double Level Discectomy and Fusion Surgery

This stock medical exhibit depicts lumbar disc injuries and the double level discectomy and fusion surgery used to repair them. The first image is an artist's interpretation of an actual MRI of the lumbar spine, which clearly shows the disc bulges at L4-L5 and L5-S1. The next four images show multiple steps of the surgical procedure, including the posterior lumbar incision, laminectomies at L4-L5 and L5-S1, discectomies and placement of bone grafts at these levels, and insertion of pedicle screws and rods at L4, L5, and S1 bilaterally. The final image is an artist's interpretation of an actual post-operative MRI, which clearly shows the bone grafts and posterior construct in place.
