Minimally invasive cervical decompression surgeries are procedures that treat spinal conditions in the neck and upper back. If you have been diagnosed with a cervical spine condition, you may be experiencing pain, numbness, tingling and impaired movement that can stay localized in the neck or radiate through the shoulders, arms and hands.
Because the cervical region of the spine must support the head and facilitate movements between the head and body, everyday activities like socializing, reading or driving can become extremely painful if a cervical vertebra or disc is damaged. Decompression surgeries include:
At Kayal Pain & Spine Center, we treat these types of cervical spine conditions using new devices and instruments that don’t require risky, open surgeries.
What to expect before, during and after minimally invasive cervical decompression
Minimally invasive cervical decompression surgeries are performed through a tiny incision (measuring approximately 1 inch) and can relieve your pain quickly without disrupting your muscles and nerves.
We use special imaging to determine the exact location of the surgery. Based on the images, a tube is inserted directly through the incision. Instead of cutting, muscle and tissues are gently moved to access the affected part of your spine.
After the surgery is complete, the incision is closed. You’ll then be moved to the recovery room where you will be monitored for a few hours. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to go home the same day. Most patients can resume some light activity a few days after spinal decompression surgery and make a full recovery within six weeks.
Discover the advantages
Traditionally, spinal surgeons have relied on open surgery to heal patients’ cervical spine compression. Open surgery allows doctors a clear look inside to relieve pressure and heal the underlying condition. However, open surgery presents risks, especially in patients with poor health.
Advanced surgical techniques minimize the need for open surgery. At Kayal Pain & Spine Center, we use minimally invasive cervical decompression procedures guided by imaging and small devices and tools.
