In brief: Depends

There are many types of spinal fusion procedures, with different anatomical approaches, locations, implants, and techniques.
The most important aspect of the surgery is the actual bone growth that occurs over months (yrs) that causes the bones treated to fuse (connect) with a solid bone connection. For more specific information, talk to your surgeon.
