Orthopedic Surgery - Spine
In brief: Depends
Most of my patients with office-type jobs return to work within 2-6 weeks, depending upon the extent of the fusion and pathology treated.
For patients with more strenuous jobs, work restrictions may apply until the fusion is verified with a ct scan, and in some cases there can be permanent work restrictions.
