Cervical and Lumbar Fusion

CERVICAL STENOSIS TREATMENT

    Cervical stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal which in turn causes increases the incidence of pressure on the spine or nerve roots. After all non-surgical spinal treatment options have proven ineffective, lumbar surgery is often the most effective treatment for cervical stenosis.

CERVICAL STENOSIS SYMPTOMS

  • • Varying degrees of neck pain
  • • Tingling or burning sensations in the arms and/or legs
  • • Pain and/or weakness in the arms, legs and shoulders
  • • Problems with bladder and bowel control

LUMBAR SPINAL FUSION

    Lumbar fusion is a surgical procedure in which two vertebrae are fused together in order to: eliminate motion in an enflamed vertebral segment, relieve pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots or to prevent kyphosis.

CERVICAL FUSION

     A cervical fusion is again the fusing of two or more vertebra together. The cervical spine consists of the top seven vertebrae, in the spinal column, as well as eight pairs of cervical nervesuppers. A cervical fusion is a fusion surgery performed on the vertebra in this area of the spine.
