pedicle screw removal ?

Up coming back surgery Dr. wants to remove pedicle screws and attemp to promote bone growth for fusion.

Why remove pedicle screws from previous surgery in order to promote bone growth for solid fusion?

Re: pedicle screw removal ?


Welcome to the boards...I'll bet if you reply with some more information about your history with back surgeries, and outcomes, we could be more helpful....

Again, welcome to the baords!
