    Results of spinal fusion for lower back pain vary from one patient to another. A good result is pain decreased by 50% or more, and is achieved in 60%-70% of patients. Complete freedom from pain after spinal fusion is rare. Full recovery can take more than a year. Watch the video for more on results of spinal fusion.
