Broken titanium screw
I am a 33 year old male that had L-5 S1 fusion due to spondylolthesis the end of March 2014. They placed 2screws and a rod on each side and went in through the front and placed a bone cage held with 2 titanium screws. Two months post op an X-ray shows one of the titanium screws holding the bone cage has snapped mid shaft. Doctor said he has never seen this. Is this a common thing to happen so soon after surgery?
