A fusion surgery is a type of surgery that essentially welds or immobilizes two or more vertebrae in an area where the spine is damaged. That damage could be to the bones itself or to the discs cushioning the them. Damage here can cause protruding parts of the spine to hit large branches of nerves. This can result in significant pain, as well as significant disability due to weakness, loss of function, or other interruption of the nerve’s signals.
