Joint Fusion Surgery (Arthrodesis) to Treat Arthritis

Joint fusion surgery, also called athrodesis, includes hand, hip, knee, ankle, cervical, thoracic, lumbar and spine surgery. It is performed to relieve arthritis pain. In this procedure, two bones on each end of a joint are fused, eliminating the joint itself.
