What Is Wrong Level Spinal Fusion?

A wrong level fusion is where the doctor wants to do, hypothetically, a fusion at C2-3 and instead fuses C3-4.   This is a terrible act that should never happen.  The result of a fusion is that additional pressures are put on the spinal levels above and below the fused area that can lead to premature degeneration and need for subsequent surgery.  Bottom line: it's usually negligent conduct.
