Surgical Options

  • Anterior Cervical Fusion

    In cases where arm pain is caused by a cervical disc bulge or herniation or from degenerative changes producing osteophytic spurs (aka “bone spurs”), the pain is called cervical radiculopathy.

  • Artificial Disc Replacement

    Replacing a damaged disc with an artificial disc can reduce pain in the neck or lower back.

  • Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR)

    An artificial disc (also called a disc replacement, disc prosthesis or spine arthroplasty device) is a device that is implanted into the spine to imitate the functions of a normal disc (carry load and allow motion).

  • Bone Graft Alternatives

    Bone grafts are bone that is transplanted from one area of the skeleton to another to aid in healing, strengthening or improving function.

  • Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP)

    One of the most critical components of building, healing and remodeling bone in humans is a process called osteoinduction.

  • Cervical Disc Replacement

    Cervical disc replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing a damaged or degenerated cervical disc and replacing it with an artificial disc device.

  • Cervical Laminoplasty

    Cervical laminoplasty is a surgical technique that removes pressure from the spinal cord in the neck.

  • Fusion

    If there is pain at one or more levels due to disc degeneration, the adjoining segments can be fused together to limit motion and stabilize the segment.

  • Laminoplasty

    Laminoplasty is a surgical technique for the cervical spine, which gives more room to the spinal cord in the neck when it is compressed by disc material, bone spurs, or ligaments.

  • Laminotomy/Laminectomy

    A laminectomy, or removal of the lamina, provides access to the inside of the spinal canal, and allows more room to remove a herniated disc or to open up a tight nerve hole (foramen).
