Cervical or Lumbar Fusion and Social Security Disability Benefits

For a consultation with a Charlotte disability attorney about your cervical/lumbar fusion procedure, contact the Bridgman Law Offices at (888) 632-9912.Medical-Malpractice-Lawyer-in-Utah-300x199.jpg

The lumbar and cervical areas of the spine are often easy to injure; as a result, lumbar fusions are the most commonly performed fusion procedure. An patient who has had a surgical fusion will usually incur a loss of mobility and flexibility. However, spinal fusion is not always successful, and if you are unable to work as a result of spinal fusion, you could be eligible for Social Security disability benefits with the aid of an experienced Charlotte disability attorney.  

The Procedure

Spinal fusion surgery is a complicated procedure that requires the combining two or more individual vertebrae in the cervical or lumbar area of the spine. The process of the fusion often involves the use of supplementary external fixation, bone grafts, and the body's natural bone-producing process.

The SSA and Cervical/Lumbar Fusion

In the cases where the spine needs to be fused surgically, the Social Security Administration will analyze your residual functional capacity (RFC) to decide whether you are eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits. In observing your RFC, the Social Security Administration will look at your recovery after the procedure, including the degree of mobility, chronic pain, presence of any complications, and/or any other limitations that resulted from the spinal injury and surgery.

Contact a Charlotte Disability Attorney

If you have been in a serious injury that required spinal fusion surgery and are experiencing chronic pain and other symptoms because of it, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.
