AxiaLIF® means Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion. It is an alternative to traditional open and minimally invasive low back surgery performed to treat degenerative disc disease (DDD), spinal stenosis, or low grade spondylolisthesis at L5-S1.

In some patients, these disorders may lead to spinal instability and pain. The procedure involves implanting the AxiaLIF device (a short threaded rod) after the center of the disc is removed from between the last lumbar vertebra and the sacrum (L5-S1).
