Cervical Discectomy Spine Surgery

Approximate Cost :On Request Duration : 3-10 Days

Cervical Discectomy is a popular procedure for effective treatment of neck problems due to disc herniation or disc bulge. Prolapse of intervertebral disc causes compression of spinal nerves and spinal cord in the neck region, resulting in radiating pain numbness and tingling along one or both arms. Cervical Discectomy removes the offending disc fragments or the whole disc thus relieving cord or nerve compression and restoring them to their original shape and size.

 
The Cervical segment of the human spine consists of 7 cervical vertebrae separated by soft intervertebral discs. These discs provide shock absorption and facilitate neck movements. With age these discs lose their water content due to wear and tear and disintegrate, reducing the intervertebral height. The vertebral body also undergoes degeneration and bony spurs are formed on the under surface of vertebral body along with thickening of facet joints. These disc fragments and osteophytes encroach into the foramen (passage of exiting nerve roots) compressing the nerve roots resulting in pain.

 

Who may require Cervical Discectomy ?

Those patients who suffer from persistent neck pain, one or both arm pain and weakness, instability while walking and lack of bowel and bladder control in spite of taking conservative treatment methods such as rest, medication, physical therapy are ideal candidates for this procedure. The disc may herniate backwards to compress upon the cord or it may bulge sideways to compress upon the nerve. Cord compression may lead to numbness and weakness of both arms and in severe case may affect the bowel and bladder function. This procedure aims to remove the complete disc or its fragments in order to relieve compression of the cord or nerve and restore their function.

Outcome and Recovery

The patients report an immediate relief in their symptoms after the surgery. The patient is allowed to go home in 1-2 days and allowed to begin gradually with his normal activities. Gentle stretching and strengthening exercises for neck muscles are progressed gradually and general body endurance program is initiated. Vigorous neck movements should be avoided to allow proper healing of the graft. The physical therapist will advise on how to perform various activities without straining the neck.
