What is Neck Surgery?

Neck pain is a common condition that has a variety of reasons. Surgery is a treatment option for long-term neck pain, but it's rarely the first choice. In fact, with the correct type of conservative treatment, many cases of neck pain may be resolved. When all other options for treating neck pain have failed, neck surgery is usually considered. Most doctors prefer that patients try to treat their neck pain with medication, rest, and physical therapy first. For one thing, there is no guarantee that neck surgery would help, considering the dangers and adverse effects. When done correctly, though, it can deliver the pain relief you need.

How to Prepare For Neck Surgery?

  • To reduce the risk of severe bleeding, your surgeon will advise you to avoid certain medications and supplements prior to surgery.
  • Tell your doctor if you have any medication allergies. Anaesthesia can induce an allergic response, though this is extremely unusual.
  • If you smoke, you must stop for at least four weeks before and after the procedure. For proper healing, you must refrain from smoking during this time.
  • Maintain a balanced diet. This will help your body in healing.
  • Plan on taking at least one week off from work. Talk with your doctor about how much time off you'll require.

What are the types of Neck Surgery?

Neck surgery is divided into several categories. The type of surgery that requires is based upon a number of factors, including the cause of the disease, the doctor's suggestion, and the personal choices. The following are some of the most common neck surgeries.

Cervical spinal fusion

Both of your vertebrae are fused together to form a single, solid piece of bone in cervical spinal fusion. It's used when a part of the neck is unstable or when mobility produces pain in the afflicted area.

Anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion (ACDF)

ACDF, or anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion, is a type of surgery used to treat a pinched nerve or spinal cord compression.

Anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion (ACCF)

This procedure is similar to ACDF and is used to treat spinal cord compression. If you have bone spurs that cannot be removed by surgery such as ACDF, it may be the best surgical choice.


A laminectomy is a procedure that relieves pressure on your spinal cord or nerves. The physician creates an incision on the back of your neck during this treatment.


Laminoplasty is a procedure that relieves pressure on the spinal cord and related nerves as an alternative to laminectomy. An incision at the back of your neck is also required.

Artificial disk replacement (ADR)

ADR stands for artificial disc replacement and is used to treat a pinched nerve in the neck. The incision will be made in the front of your neck by the surgeon.

Posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy

Another surgical option for treating a pinched nerve is posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy where the incision is made on the back of the neck.
