Posterior Cervical Decompression

Posterior cervical decompression is a procedure where portions of a cervical vertebrae are removed to ease pain caused by inflamed spinal tissue or nerves.

This procedure is often performed to treat several common conditions:

  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative nerve disease
  • Spinal stenosis (bone spurs)
  • Bulging discs

Surgeons reach the affected disc through an incision the back of the neck, and using a surgical microscope, remove portions of the disc.
