L4-5 Disc Herniation with Discectomy and Fusion Procedures - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This series of medical illustrations depicts back surgery, specifically an L4-5 disc herniation with lumbar discectomy (diskectomy) and spinal fusion. The first illustration depicts the pre-operative condition, including disc herniation at L4-5. Other labeled structures in this image include the spinous process, cauda equina, vertebral body and intervertebral disc. The first image of the discectomy and fusion procedures shows the creation of a posterior incision in the middle of the lower back, exposing the L4-5 interspace. The second drawing depicts the removal of the laminae and the herniated disc material from the L4-5 interspace. The third procedural image shows the completion of the laminectomy and placement of fusion hardware. Labeled structures include pedicle screws and rods. The fourth drawing shows the completion of the fusion with the placement of fusion hardware, including titanium rods and an interbody cage. The final image shows the post-operative condition of the lumbar spine, including the location of the fusion hardware and the interbody cage with bone graft.
"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning
of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the
defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It
is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

"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!"
"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality
and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your
long list of satisfied customers."

"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
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.
