spinal pedicle fixation, pedicle screw fixation
Explanation:
referring to the technique of pedicle screw placement

Pedicle screws for spine fusion
The pedicle screw, which is sometimes used as an adjunct to spinal fusion surgery, provides a means of gripping a spinal segment.
http://www.spine-health.com/Treatment/Back-Surgery/Surgery-O...

A procedure that has been recommended is called a pedicle screw fixation. This is a surgical procedure that secures two bones to one another to, in effect, make one bone. This extensive procedure requires at least four hours of surgery, and several months of recuperation, before the final result has been achieved.
