Risks of Back Surgery: Ask the Expert

Worried about the risks of back surgery? Check out this video from Dr. Mladen Djurasovic of Norton Leatherman Spine:

“All surgery has risks. One of the biggest risks that we face with lumbar fusion surgery is a post-operative wound infection. And with a lot of these…basic procedures, we’ve seen a much lower rate of wound infection compared to traditional fusion, so that’s actually a risk factor that we’re able to decrease with some of the new techniques that we’re using.”
