A small incision is made in the front of the neck, and the disc is removed and replaced with a spacer to stimulate fusion of the vertebra. The arthritis and disc that is pinching on the nerve and/or spinal cord is removed. This approach avoids cutting muscle, and leads to a faster recovery than traditional posterior fusions. Often the pain relief from nerve pain is immediate following the surgery.
