This procedure is performed to treat nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the nerve roots or spinal cord of the cervical spine in order to stabilise the vertebrae. This procedure is generally recommended when non-surgical options have been unsuccessful... More Info
Anterior cervical disc anthroplasty
An artificial disc is inserted to replace a herniated or degenerative disc via an anterior approach, similar to the approach utilised for the ACDF.
During this procedure, a portion of the vertebra and adjacent intervertebral discs are removed fordecompression of the spinal cord and spinal nerves... More Info

Posterior cervical fusion
This procedure is often performed in order to relieve the pain from pressure on one or more nerve roots, or on the spinal cord. It involves the stabilisation of two or more vertebrae by locking themtogether and allowing a boney bridge to form. The fusion stops the vertebral motion, which may be necessary as many of the diseased supporting structures were removed.
