What are the Long-term Side Effects of Spinal Fusion?

Updated: Mar 28

Long term spinal fusion complications can be broken down into two major categories: Failure of the procedure itself (failed fusion) & complications arising as a result of the fusion. Failed fusion, non-union & hardware breaking or becoming loose may happen

following surgical fusion.

Even when the surgery is “successful” complications may arise from the lumbar fusion. Among the long-term side effects of spinal fusion, there a number of problems that may arise as a direct result of the procedure itself. Pain returning, Adjacent Segment Disease & spinal muscle injury may occur following surgery.
