Bone graft and bone graft alternatives in spine surgery: From bench to bedside

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Spine fusions are responsible for a majority of the bone grafting procedures performed in the United States.1 In 2008, there were an estimated 400,000 spine fusions, representing a 2.4 fold increase over the previous decade.2 For these reasons, the field of spine surgery is heavily vested in bone graft and bone graft alternatives.
