Facet Fusion

A facet fusion procedure is the most reliable form of treatment for facet pain. The procedure is performed to permanently cure facet mediated pain. A spacer is placed into the facet joint to stabilize it and stop the joint from rubbing on the nerve, and thus stops the pain. This is a simple outpatient procedure with a quick recovery; most patients are back to work within a week.
