If your degenerative spondylolisthesis progresses or causes neurologic problems, such as incontinence, surgery may be recommended. Spinal instrumentation (. rods, screws) and fusion (bone graft) are common procedures performed to stop slip progression and stabilize the spine. There are different types of instrumentation, bone graft and graft products, as well as procedures (some minimally invasive ) to surgically treat degenerative spondylolisthesis. Your surgeon will explain how your surgery will be performed, as well as the benefits and risks of the procedure.
