Detailed Information

Posterior Microdiscectomy for cervical spineWhat is Posterior Microdiscectomy for Cervical Spine?

Posterior cervical microforaminotomy/discectomy is a procedure that relieves pressure or compression in the cervical spine of the nerve roots. The upper part of the spine is the cervical region. The cervical spine is connected to the skull by a series of cervical vertebras. Substantial nerve flow to the head, neck and top portions of the shoulders and arms is caused by the roots of the spinal nerve that are separated by the cervical spine. Nerves leave a spinal cord via a tunnel or space by which the spinal nerve comes out of the spine through an opening called the foramen.

The foramen and nerve structures in the region of the neck can be reduced by herniation of disc and spinal stenosis, resulting in pain, weakness, and limited hand and arm movements. Posterior cervical microforaminotomy/discectomy includes an incision on the back of the neck accompanied by removing disk content or a portion of the bone compressing the origins of the nerves.

Treatment for Posterior Microdiscectomy for Cervical Spine

Posterior cervical microforaminotomy/discectomy surgery is performed from the neck’s backside. A tiny incision is made along the neck’s back. The muscle behind the spine is cut off to reveal the impacted portion of the spine bone. Via the incision, tiny operating tools are placed and the compressed nerve or the herniated disc is exposed. A tiny quantity of bone is gently removed around the nerve root, known as a microforaminotomy, spine treatment. If any herniated or blocked portion of the disc continues to bulge against the neural root, known as microdiscectomy, it will be removed. Once the root of the nerve is decompressed, it re-approximates the muscles and closes the incision with sutures.
