Cervical fusion is the surgical joining of two or more vertebrae to stop movement between bones and eliminate neck pain.
The fusion of two bones in the neck may be completed with screws, rods, or pieces of bone, depending on your unique case. When two cervical vertebrae are fused together, they’re prevented from slipping or moving irregularly, which keeps you from stretching nearby nerves, ligaments, and muscles, helping to ease your pain and suffering.
Oppenheim and Degen Neurological Surgeons performs cervical fusions when medicine, physical therapy and other non-surgical treatments fail to ease chronic neck pain. Effective treatments for conditions such as spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease, cervical fusions protect surrounding nerves from painful pinching and irritation, which can significantly reduce neck pain.
Come in to speak with your neurosurgeon to learn if a cervical fusion is right for you.
