Minimally Invasive Anterior Cervical Discectomy

The human spine is divided into three sections : -

1. the cervical spine or neck (which is made up of 7 vertebrae)
2. the thoracic spine (which is made up of 12 vertebrae)
3. the lumbar spine or low back (which consists of 5 vertebrae)

The cervical spine begins at the base of the skull and supports the weight of the head. The spinal cord runs from the brain down through the cervical spine, controlling the function of the body's organs and limbs. In between each of the 7 vertebrae of the cervical spine are soft pads or discs which act as shock-absorbers and allow for bending and movement of the head. Each disc is made up of two parts, a soft center called the nucleus and a tough outer band called the annulus.

Why Do I Need This Procedure?

If you have a herniated disc, this means that the nucleus pulposus – the soft, gel-like center of the disc - has pushed through the annulus fibrosus, the disc’s tough, outer ring. Bone spurs, also called osteophytes, can form when the joints of the spine calcify.

Pressure placed on nerve roots, ligaments or the spinal cord by a herniated disc or bone spur may cause:

  • Pain in the neck and/or arms
  • Lack of coordination
  • Numbness or weakness in the arms, forearms or fingers.

Complications?

All treatment and outcome results are specific to the individual patient. Results may vary. Complications such as infection, nerve damage, blood clots, blood loss and bowel and bladder problems, along with complications associated with anesthesia, are some of the potential risks of spinal surgery. A potential risk inherent to spinal fusion is failure of the vertebral bone and graft to properly fuse, a condition that may require additional surgery.

Please consult your physician for a complete list of indications, warnings, precautions, adverse effects, clinical results and other important medical information that pertains to the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion procedure.
