Cervical discectomy

Cervical discectomy surgery will relieve spinal cord or nerve root pressure and alleviate corresponding pain, weakness, numbness and tingling.

What is involved in a cervical discectomy?

Cervical discectomy removes a cervical disc herniation through an anterior approach to relieve spinal cord or nerve root pressure and alleviate corresponding pain, weakness, numbness and tingling.

The anterior approach to the cervical spine (from the front of the neck) can provide exposure from C2 down to the cervicothoracic junction.

Discectomies can be performed on other parts of the spinal column and are often performed in conjunction with a laminectomy from a posterior approach.
