Minimally Invasive Posterior Cervical Fusion
Minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion is a procedure used to relieve neck pain by removing the pressure on pinched nerves that has been unrelieved by conservative measures.
During the procedure a titanium cervical cage, about the size of a tic tac, is placed between the facet joints. This lifts the facet joint relieving the pressure on the pinched nerve. Bone graft material is inserted in and around the cage to promote fusion without the use of hardware (screws and plates).
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing minimally invasive minimally invasive posterior cervical fusion procedures.
