Before go to this rather complicated surgery, it would be better for you to get the knowledge about “Lumbar”. Lumbar are a part of the human backbone or spine. Lumbar Spine including 5 lumbar bones called vertebrae. Each lumbar vertebra is formed from bundles of round bone, called the vertebral body, and the bony arch attached to the back of each vertebral body.
Lumbar can be broken due to accident, aging, and degenerative process. To overcome the broken lumbar, one of alternatives is by doing transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion with sextant. Then, how is it going? Get your eyes on this following paragraph!
Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion with sextant process is served to replace the diseased or broken lumbar while keep your backbone’s mobility well. Sextant process itself is a method of implementing artificial disc to replace that broken interbody lumbar. The process begins with the dissection of your back body. Then the surgeon will search for troubled lumbar.
After they find it, they will take it off from your body and then insert or implement the ADR (artificial disc replacement) on that empty area, in order to replace the broken lumbar that had been taken and thrown away (you can ask for the doctor not to throw it away and you can collect is as souvenir though).
This process must be done very thoroughly and carefully, thus it can take up to dozen hours to be accomplished. Few mistakes can lead to fatal, because this area is very near to ultra-sensitive neuron such foramen neural.
Let’s say the surgery knife accidentally cut just one of that neuron, your backbone history will end. Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion with sextant process give the best hope for the patient to get optimal result compared to conventional surgery. Some people who had gone through this surgery successfully prove that they can recover like they used to be, they can walk, run, even jump once again.
