Spinal Fusion Surgery

Spinal fusion surgery may sound somewhat scary, but it is a fairly common procedure that corrects problems with the small bones in the spine (vertebrae). It is essentially a “welding” process.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Spine surgery can cause a lot of apprehension in patients. But with minimally invasive techniques, the recovery can be shortened. People can be back at work pretty quickly. And, in the end, we can see a really meaningful return in function.


Most back, neck and spine surgery patients will need rehabilitation after their procedure. Rehabilitation may include lifestyle changes, such as weight loss or new exercises, as well as physical therapy and occupational therapy. Your surgical team will work closely with our rehabilitation specialists to ensure you get the right therapy to fit your needs and lifestyle.

"Our neuro-rehabilitation patients benefit from the latest equipment and technologies at Baptist Health. One such piece, a sophisticated assistive device dubbed “The Transformer” by hospital staff, features a computer-controlled, exoskeleton-like frame that is strapped to the patient, allowing them to walk. As they become stronger every day, the computer backs off on the assistance provided, putting more of the effort back on to the patient until they can once again walk on their own, unassisted."

"Our inpatient neurorehabilitation unit at Homestead Hospital also has a model Publix grocery store where patients can practice lifting canned foods and other actual items from shelves, placing them in their cart and then on to the check-out counter."
