Posterior Cervical Fusion

A posterior cervical fusion is performed through an incision in the back of the neck. A posterior cervical fusion is used where the surgeon requires access to the back of the neck,

  • to stop the motion between two or more vertebrae
  • to recreate the normal curve of the cervical spine and keep a spinal deformity from getting worse
  • to stabilize the spine after a fracture or dislocation of the cervical spine

Instrumented Posterior Cervical Fusion
A graft that is held tightly in place has a better chance of fusing. To improve fusion, we commonly use metal plates, screws, and rods that hold the spine in place. These implants are referred to as instrumentation. Many different types of metal implants are used with the intent of maximizing healing of the fusion.

The surgeons of SouthPalm Ortho-Spine Institute always consider minimally invasive surgery as an option.
