Spondy/retrolisthesis vertebra position

Looking for the listhesis folks to chime in here- if you had fusion surgery, did the surgeon reposition the vertebra prior to fusing? I was told by the surgeon that he can try, but most times the position is inconsequential. That it's the added stability that brings about the reduction in pain. While I agree with that last bit, the position of the vertebra HAS to have an effect on the mechanics of the spine, possibly adding additional stress to the adjacent levels, maybe pain, no?
