Posterior Cervical Fusion Surgery Atlanta, GA

The neck or cervical spine area requires stability for protection of the spine and to prevent many types of neck pain. When the cervical vertebrae need stability, surgery may be required to connect two or more vertebrae. Posterior cervical fusion surgery can use bone grafting to fuse the vertebra together, creating a stable spine and neck. Our experienced team of spinal specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can perform complex spine surgeries to alleviate pain and prevent further damage, including posterior cervical fusion surgery.

Fusion surgery in the neck can be used for treating neck pain that is caused by the movement of the neck vertebrae. It can also be used to prevent further deformities in the cervical spine or to protect the spinal cord. The surgery is performed through an incision in the back of the neck, accessing the cervical spine. In most cases, bone grafting and instrumentation are used to fuse the vertebrae together. As the two vertebrae heal, they become one piece of bone, creating stability in the neck.

Posterior Cervical Decompression Microdiscectomy

When there is cervical disc degeneration or herniated discs in the neck, there can be decompression of the spinal cord or nerves. When conservative treatments are not effective, posterior cervical decompression microdiscectomy is one of the options our surgeons at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians may recommend for relief. This surgery accesses the cervical spine from the back or posterior position. Posterior microdiscectomy can be preferred in some cases as spinal fusion is not needed as it is in many anterior microdiscectomy procedures.

If you have neck pain or other issues caused by instability in the cervical spine, herniated discs or other neck problems, contact our team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our double board-certified physicians can help treat a wide variety of back and neck medical conditions, including advanced surgeries to correct cervical spine issues.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
