The DLIF (Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion) procedure involves a small skin incision in your side (therefore, direct lateral). Using minimally invasive surgical techniques, the neurosurgeon separates muscles (psoas muscle) and soft tissues to access the intervertebral disc. Because access to the spine is through the psoas muscle, DLIF is sometimes called a trans-psoas LIF or approach.
