I had a spine fusion March 2012 on L1 L2. My incision was on my back. I know somebody (she has bulging disc due to degenerative disc disease) having a spine fusion (L4 L5) Friday and the surgeon is making the incision on her abdomen. She said there will be 2 surgeons. One to move all her organs out of the way and one to do the fusion. I have never heard of this, has anybody here heard of it.
