Can you please tell me how effective a spinal bone growth stimulator is for a fusion? My first fusion did not fuse so I was re-fused. I am only 29!

In brief: 1st time is a charm-

-2nd time around you need all the help you can get.
They do have a good success rate, better for long bones, ,but the fusion rate does increase
