Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) surgery involves removing bone to decompress the spine. A discectomy, removal of disc, is performed through the lateral foramen to remove the damaged or herniated disc. After the discectomy, a straight or curved PEEK or Titanium interbody device is placed at the level of the removed disc. Pedicle screws are placed through the pedicles of the vertebral bodies and fixated with rods and set screws at the level above and below the interbody device.
