Cervical Discectomy

Cervical Discectomy

(Minimally Invasive)

Cervical spine surgery is generally performed on an elective basis to treat either:

  • Nerve/spinal cord impingement
  • Spinal instability (fusion surgery)

The two procedures are often combined, as a decompression may de-stabilize the spine and create the need for a fusion to add stability. Spinal instrumentation (such as a small plate) can also be used to help add stability to the spinal construct.
