Leonard Kibuule, MD, orthopedic spine surgeon at Spine Team Texas, discusses the OLIF procedure.  The OLIF (Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion) is a new, innovative approach to a spinal fusion for patients suffering with spine pain as a result of spinal instability.  The OLIF is minimally invasive compared to the traditional approach for a spinal fusion and allows the procedure to be completed without having to excise  muscles.  Unlike the more traditional approach where muscles may have to be excised which results in greater post-surgical pain, the OLIF technique typically results in less post-surgical pain, quicker recovery times, and less blood loss.  Watch here to see how the OLIF is helping patients find phenomenal spine pain relief!
