Surgical Treatment

Surgery is used when the slip is severe and when symptoms are not relieved with nonsurgical treatments. Symptoms that cause an abnormal walking pattern, changes in bowel or bladder function, or steady worsening in nerve function require surgery. The main types of surgery for spondylolisthesis include:

  • Anterior or posterior lumbar interbody fusion
  • Laminectomy
  • Posterior fusion with instrumentation
