Spinal fusion surgery

Spinal Fusion (neck fusion) is a surgical technique in which one or more of the vertebrae of the spine are united together ("fused") so that motion no longer occurs between them. Bone grafts are placed around the spine during surgery. The body then heals the grafts over several months - similar to healing a fracture - which joins or "welds" the vertebrae together.

Spinal fusion surgery is used to treat:

  • a fractured (broken) vertebra e.g. spondylolisthesis
  • deformity e.g. scoliosis or kyphosis (spinal curves or slippages)
  • pain from painful motion
  • instability
  • some cervical disc herniations (fusion together with discectomy)
  • weak or unstable spine caused by infections or tumors

Affordable spine fusion surgery in South Korea

If you are uninsured or under-insured, having a spine fusion procedure in the United States can be expensive. In Canada, on the other hand, waiting list for spine fusion surgery under the government-run NHS system is very long with years of waiting before an appointment for spinal fusion surgery can be obtained. This deteriorates the quality of life of the individual suffering from back pain or other back problems. Under such circumstances, many Americans and Canadians find it a better option to have their spine fusion surgery overseas in countries such as South Korea. Even with travel and lodging added into the final bill, the total cost savings can be in the thousands of dollars.

South Korea is becoming a hot medical tourism destination among Westerners looking for fast access to affordable high quality medical care such as spinal surgery. The modern infrastructure in the country along with personalized and affordable care add to its appeal as a top medical tourism destination.

Cost savings for medical procedures compared to US or Europe are tremendous. Depending upon the surgery sought, savings can range from upwards of 50% for comparable treatments in the US, UK or other Western countries.
