In brief: It is very common.

Transforaminal interbody fusion, or tlif, is a common spinal procedure.
It is just one of many tools used in spine surgery. It's important that the decision for surgery be made carefully, and that the particular combination of procedures be individualized for a person's anatomy and symptoms.
