Lumbar Fusions Input Needed
#6
While helpful for a small minority of cases of fracture or grade II or greater slippage with nerve injury, Lumbar fusions are the new radical mastectomy. The data does not support it's use for chronic low back pain due to Degenerative disc disease as there is no evidence that patients experience and substantial functional improvement post fusion and ample data that a second surgery will be necessary within ten years or so.

The evidence based guidelines say not to do them for back pain.
