blog

Anterior Cervical Procedure refers to the procedure where the surgeon removes damaged vertebrae and intervertebral discs from the cervical spine (in the neck region) that is compressing the spinal cord and spinal nerves, surgically approaching through the front of the neck. This procedure is carried out to treat patients suffering from degenerating cervical spine which has resulted in the formation of bony projections (bone spurs), or herniated discs.
