This surgery relieves pressure on the spinal cord and the spinal nerves. It involves the removal of bone and discs from your cervical spine, followed by a fusion.
What is an anterior cervical corpectomy?
This detailed video explains the entire process of an anterior cervical corpectomy, including preparation, incision creation, eliminating pressure, inserting the graft, other devices, and ending the procedure. In the weeks after the surgery, new bone will grow and attach securely to the graft or implant. This will create a permanent fusion. You may benefit from physical therapy as you heal.
