Spine Surgery Treatment

Spine surgery is generally performed on an elective basis to treat either: The two procedures are often combined, as a decompression may de-stabilize the spine and create the need for a fusion to add stability. Spinal instrumentation (such as a small plate) can also be used to help add stability to the spinal construct.
Often used to help provide considerable stability for the spine after surgery, cervical spinal instrumentation may include:

  • Anterior cervical plates
  • Posterior cervical plates
  • Posterior cervical wiring
  • Anterior cervical inter body cages
  • Post-operative cervical braces
