Who needs Cervical Corpectomy?
Anterior Cervical Corpectomy is suggested for patients who have nerve compression in the cervical spine. The nerve compression in the cervical spine causes neck pain, numbness, and weakness in the hands, arms, and shoulders.
This procedure is also suggested for patients who experience symptoms such as pins and needles, tingling, or weakness in the hands and arms. More serious symptoms can be stumbling, loss of balance, and a loss of control of bowel and bladder.
Cervical Corpectomy is recommended only for patients who have gone through conservative treatment but these treatments failed.
