Cervical Spine Surgery
Neck or spinal pain affects nearly 8% of the population at some point in their lives. The pain can be the result of a specific incident of trauma, degeneration or even poor posture and body mechanics.
Cervical spine surgery is one of the more common types of spinal surgery. Cervical spine surgery is often the combination of two types of surgery, cervical spinal decompression and cervical spinal fusion. These two cervical spine surgery procedure create stabilization in the spine and relieve pressure on the nerve roots which cause the pain.
Typically cervical spine surgery is an elective surgery, although based on the patient’s pain level, it may be all but inevitable if the patient is interested in maintaining a active lifestyle. Symptoms of cervical spine pain may include neck and shoulder pain, numbness, weakness in the arms or legs, dizziness and headaches.
