We have another Video Minute for you, presented by Dr. Peter Angevine, Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery at the Spine Center in the Department of Neurological Surgery, CUMC/NYP. In this Video Minute, he discusses how cervical foraminotomy can be an option for patients with nerve root compression in the neck.
Cervical nerve root compression may come from herniated disc material. It can cause pain in the neck, shoulder, arm, and hand, and sometimes requires spine surgery. Cervical foraminotomy is a surgical procedure that takes pressure off the nerve root by widening a pathway in the neck where the spinal nerve root exits the spinal column. This procedure does not require spinal fusion.
