A facet fixation is a surgical procedure to help stabilize the spine.
Specialized bolts are inserted into the facet joints of two or more vertebrae, locking the vertebrae together and increasing spinal stabilization.
There are many benefits to facet fixation. In addition to locking the vertebrae together, pain can be alleviated through the procedure. Many patients report immediate results right after facet fixation surgery. Our spine health team uses minimally invasive techniques to discover the exact joints that are damaged so they can operate without major trauma.
