Cervical Discectomy is a surgery that is performed to remove a herniated or degenerative disc from the neck. The degenerative disc is first removed and a graft is inserted at the place to fuse together the vertebrae above and below the disc.
Cervical discectomy is a surgical procedure that helps relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve root in the neck by removing a part or entire damaged disc. Surgery may be recommended if other treatments and medications fail to relieve the pain. Recovery after the surgery takes about 4 weeks, however patients can go home the same day.
Who needs a Cervical Discectomy?
Neck and back pain symptoms can be relieved through methods like rest, heat, medication, and physical therapy. However certain aggravated procedures may require a surgery for treatment. Surgical procedures are usually the last phase of treatment when other treatments do not work.
Surgery is performed in cases where the patient does not get relief from non-operative forms of treatment. For some people with severe neck pain that affect the cervical spine, a cervical discectomy may be required.
How is it preformed?
Cervical discectomy is the most common surgical procedure carried out to treat damaged cervical discs. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or the nerve roots by removing the herniated disc. During the surgery, the soft tissues of the neck are cut and separated to reach the disc which is to be removed. A graft (metal plate) is typically inserted to provide stability to the vertebrae while the bone fusion heals.
