Spinal fusion is surgery to permanently connect two or more vertebrae in your spine, eliminating motion between them. Spinal surgery involves techniques designed to mimic the normal healing process of broken bones. During spinal fusion, your surgeon places bone or a bonelike material within the space between two spinal vertebrae. Metal plates, screws and rods may be used to hold the vertebrae together, so they can heal into one solid unit. Spinal fusion permanently connects two or more vertebrae in your spine to improve stability, correct a deformity or reduce pain.

Spinal fusion is the most common surgery for chronic nonspecific back pain with degenerative changes. The doctor will join spinal bones, called vertebrae, together. It’s rare, but the bones don’t always fuse completely. Smoking can make this complication more likely. If it happens, you may need another operation to fix it.
Spinal surgery can take as little as 2 ½ hours, and as long as 6 or 7 hours, occasionally even longer. How long it takes depends on the number of vertebrae being fused, how badly the vertebrae are diseased, whether spinal nerves are pinched and need to be decompressed, and whether there is scarring from prior surgeries. Also you may be in the hospital for 1 to 3 days; longer if you have spinal treatment. Rest is important. But doctors want you out of bed as soon as possible. Most people start physical therapy within 24 hours.
Recovery after diskectomy is usually quick. After a diskectomy or foraminotomy, you may still feel pain, numbness, or weakness along the path of the nerve that was under pressure. These symptoms should get better in a few weeks. Recovery after fusion surgery and laminectomy is longer. You will not be able to return to activities as quickly.
It takes at least 3 to 4 months after surgery for bones to heal well, and healing may continue for at least a year. If you had spinal fusion treatment, you will probably be off work for 4 to 6 weeks if you are young and healthy and your job is not very strenuous. It may take 4 to 6 months for older people with more extensive surgery to get back to work. Length of recovery of fusion surgery procedure also depends on how bad your condition was before spinal surgery.
