L5-S1 Anterior Discectomy and Fusion Procedure - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit shows an L5-S1 anterior discectomy and fusion procedure in a series of illustrations. The first illustration is an orientation to the pre-operative condition. It shows a sagittal view of the lumbar spine with the L5-S1 intervertebral disc impinging on the cauda equina of the spinal cord. The second illustration shows an incision in the lower back through which bone graft is harvested from the right posterior iliac crest. The third illustration shows an incision made into the abdomen to expose the L5-S1 disc space. The fourth illustration shows a rongeur removing the L5-S1 disc. The fifth illustration shows a drill drilling holes between L5 and S1 to make room for implants. The sixth illustration shows the insertion of the implants and bone graft into the holes.
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have
used their services for three years and always found their professionalism,
quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations.
We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical
malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the
other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9
million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in
helping us to successfully conclude these cases.
I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and
I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical
illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require
medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is
whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal
Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and
persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to
understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"
