L4-5, L5-6, L6-S1 Spinal Stenosis with Lumbar Fusion Procedure - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts an L4-5, L5-6, and L6-S1 spinal stenosis with lumbar fusion procedure. The first illustration shows a lateral view of the skull and a sagittal view of the spine and spinal cord. The second illustration depicts an enlarged sagittal view of the lumbar spine, showing the pre-operative condition. It portrays a previous discectomy site as well as spinal stenosis and instability at the L4-5, L5-L6 and L6-S1 levels.

The third illustration begins the lumbar fusion procedure. In it, an incision is made into the lower back of a caucasian figure to expose the vertebrae from L4-S1. The fourth illustration portrays decompression laminectomies from L4-5 down to the L5-S1 level. The fifth illustration shows the decorticating of the lateral gutters at L5, L6 and S1. Bone graft is then placed over the decorticated areas. The sixth illustration shows the insertion of pedicle screws and the placement of fusion plates from L5-S1.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
