Neck operations are designed to alleviate spinal cord compression and/or stabilize excessive motion. These procedures can be performed from the front of the neck, posteriorly, or both.
We are at the forefront of technological advances in our field and are committed to sharing the latest innovations in spinal treatment with you. Our medical experts include pain management specialists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists that are exceptional with their results.
Minimally invasive surgery has been shown to be effective treatment for relieving pain.
Decrease Blood Loss
Using the latest technology we are able to significantly reduce the amount of blood loss.
Faster Recovery Times
Get back to doing the things you love. Many of our patients return home within 24 hours.
Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement
What is an Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement (ADR/CDR) and who is a candidate?
Artificial disc replacement is a motion sparing minimally invasive procedure performed through an anterior incision in the cervical spine. It is often used to treat one or two level degenerative disc disease (DDD) or disc herniations resulting in cervical myelopathy or radiculopathy as well as neck pain related to the disc itself. Patients with severe DDD, facet joint spondylosis, cervical dynamic slips (spondylolisthesis), deformity, and metal allergies are better suited with minimally invasive anterior cervical discectomy fusions (ACDF).
Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF)
What is an ACDF and who is a candidate?
As the name implies, an ACDF is a minimally invasive fusion operation performed through an anterior incision in the cervical spine to relieve pressure placed on the spine. It is effective in treating degenerative disc disease (DDD), bone spurs, or disc herniations resulting in cervical myelopathy or arm pain (radiculopathy) as well as neck pain.
What is a cervical microforaminotomy and who is a candidate?
Cervical microforaminotomies are minimally invasive procedures done through a posterior incision in the neck for upper extremity pain and/or weakness (radiculopathy). It is a motion sparing procedure that can be done in the outpatient setting. Those patients with severe central compression, sagittal deformity, mechanical neck pain, and far lateral disease are better suited with an alternative procedure offered.
Cervical Posterior Decompression & Fusion
What is Cervical Posterior Decompression and Fusion and who is a candidate?
When conservative measures fail for the treatment of congenital or degenerative cervical spinal stenosis, or in the setting of tumors, infection, or trauma, a posterior approach to the cervical spine may be indicated. The source of compression of the spine is removed and the bones are structurally reinforced with instrumentation. Posterior cervical instrumentation can also be used to support anterior cervical fusion
and improve the rate of fusion (arthrodesis) in patients with risk factors for nonunion.
