Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) is a procedure where a surgeon can remove a diseased or damaged lumbar disc by going from an anterior approach. This approach can be through the abdomen or through the flank. ALIF is generally performed to allow wide access to the disc. Generally speaking, a vascular surgeon will be involved with the surgery in order to help with the exposure to the lumbar spine. The advantage of this type of surgery is that the disc can be approached generally without disturbing the nerves in the back. This is typically done to allow a surgeon to place a robust cage into the space and provide extensive support to the spine. Talk with your doctor more about this surgery if you are interested.
