Cervical Surgery

The most frequent pathologies that affect the cervical spine and that require surgical treatment are the herniated disc and the myelopathy due to canal stenosis.

Other less frequent are fractures, deformities, tumors or infections and various diseases with potential neurological compromise.

The type of surgery and the decision making will depend on each case, by anterior approach with discectomy and arthrodesis or placement of disc prostheses, or by posterior approach with laminectomy and correction of the cervical curvature (physiological cervical lordosis).
