Cervical Foraminotomy

This is generally done as a surgery from the posterior side of the neck. It can be an excellent, less invasive procedure for arm pain when a nerve in the neck is being pinched. This procedure generally does not involve fusing the spine or the placement of any fixation hardware.

This surgery creates more space for a compressed spinal nerve in your neck. The procedure relieves painful pressure caused by a herniated or degenerative disc.
