Cervical Spine Surgery

What is Cervical Surgery?

Our spinal column is divided into 4 parts, and the first seven vertebrae are named the C1-C7. The first part of your backbone is named the cervical column. It begins on your skull, and it ends up in the neck area. If you are experiencing neck or arm pain, loss of coordination, headaches and fever, weakness in arms, you may be having a cervical spine problem. Sometimes doctors may treat it with physical therapy or medications, but if it does not improve they have to go into surgery. Most of the time the pressure between the vertebrae is damaging the nerves. Cervical Spine surgery is usually minimal-invasive. Contact our case manager to see if you qualify for Cervical Spine Surgery. 
How is Cervical spine surgery performed at Family Hospital?

There are several procedures you should discuss with your case manager and surgeon which is best for you. Some of the procedures are:

1) Discectomy: Under General anesthesia, the surgeon makes a small incision in the neck, and moving the structures to a side reach the vertebrae. The surgeon removes the intervertebral disk and the bone spurs. They could add bone fusion, screws or a plate. 

2) Laminectomy:Under general anesthesia the surgeon makes an incision in the middle of the neck. Moving all the scturtures to the side, the surgeon removes the lamina allowing more space for the nerves. 

3) A combination of techniques, depending on your particular situation. The best strategy for your surgery will be determined after careful reviee of your medical        records.
