Painful facet joints are cited as the most common cause of chronic backpain, a leading cause of long-term disability. TruFUSE uses specially designedbone dowels to stop facet joints from moving, which is intended to eliminateor dramatically reduce back pain caused by a variety of reasons. TruFUSE isalso used to supplement other back surgeries when more invasive or destructivemeans are not required. The TruFUSE procedure is intended to fuse the facetjoints through a natural healing process for a long-term solution. BecauseTruFUSE causes minimal tissue damage, it does not preclude other options,including non-surgical alternatives, and TruFUSE can be used earlier thanother, more invasive spine fusion methods.
