Spine Surgery - L5-S1 Spondylolisthesis with Spinal Cord Decompression/ This medical exhibit begins with two views of the L5-S1 disc herniation (herniated disk) and nerve root compression. Three key steps of the spinal decompression and cage spinal fusion surgery follow. The exhibit is completed with an axial view of the post-operative condition in which all the disc material has been removed, two fusion cages are in place and the L5 nerve root is completely decompressed.
