The patient had been operated in three different clinics in Baku and once in Anadolu Health Center (Istanbul) with the complaints of back pain and pain, spreading to the right lower extremity before he came to our clinic.

The patient underwent surgery: TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion) at the level of L4 – L5, posterior fixation, spinal fusion (posterior fusion). After 1 month, the patient returned to his normal life. Back and right leg pain had completely disappeared.
