There are plenty of spinal fusion surgery animations available online as well as real surgical videos that explain what happens during spinal fusion operations. Although it can be difficult to see what is happening in real surgical videos, 3D spinal fusion surgical simulations can be easy to experience significant aspects of the operation without explaining what is happening. The surgical release of soft tissues is one region that is usually skipped over. This surgical release removes contractured ligaments and other soft tissue that limit the amount of straightening the spine.
