Posterior Cervical Fusion

A posterior cervical decompression and fusion is a common surgical procedure to treat abnormal movement, pain and/or narrowing in the cervical spine. The goal is to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots, or to help stabilize as a result of abnormal motion or neck instability. It is sometimes used in conjunction with other surgical procedures, such an ACDF to enable additional structural support and promote fusion of the bones in the neck.
