Stand Alone ALIF involves removing a damaged disc to relieve the spinal cord or nerve root pressure and alleviate the corresponding pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling. After the discectomy is performed, a bone filled PEEK(plastic) or titanium interbody device is placed at the site of the removed disc. Screws are then placed through the cage into the vertebral body to secure the interbody device in place.
