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.
"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization
of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner.
Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
Medical Legal Art creates medical demonstrative evidence (medical
illustrations, drawings, pictures, graphics, charts, medical animations,
anatomical models, and interactive presentations) for use during legal
proceedings, including research, demand letters, client conferences,
depositions, arbitrations, mediations, settlement conferences, mock jury
trials and for use in the courtroom. We do not provide legal or medical
advice. If you have legal questions, you should find a lawyer with whom you
can discuss your case issues. If you have medical questions, you should seek the advice of a healthcare provider.
