Over-the-counter medications such as Motrin, Advil, or Ibuprofen can be consumed for pain-relieving as needed. Medications given at the hospital to prepare for the surgery are a part of the package price. However, once you are discharged, the medicines you buy will not be included in the package.

Frequently Asked Questions Related to Cervical Spine Surgery

Before the Procedure (10 Questions):

There are three types of surgeries, Open, Minimally invasive and Robotic surgery or robot-assisted surgery which allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques. The type of surgery on the patient depends upon the case.

Once the nerves are getting compressed and the spine is unstable, there are some symptoms that eventually start appearing such as - loss of urine and stool control, sharp pain while walking which in the extreme case can lead to paralysis.

If the patient is doing surgery once these symptoms have started appearing, some of these changes in the body are irreversible. Hence, once the diagnosis is made, the patient shouldn't wait unnecessarily for the surgery.

It is between 95-97%.

50-year life expectancy.

Spine surgeries have become extremely safe since the onset of the latest techniques like Neuronavigation. Even then the risk to life is less than 1 % and the chances of surgery to fail will be between 2 - 5%.

Cervical spine surgery is recommended to get relieve from neck pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the neck and to restore the nerve function and to stop or prevent the abnormal motion in your neck.  This surgery is being done to treat either nerve  or spinal cord impingement and spinal instability.

Cervical spine surgery is indicated to treat different types of spinal neck problems, this surgey may be done to treat  different types of degenerative disorders such as trauma or instability which may produce pressure on the spinal cord or on the nerves coming from the spine.

Cervical spine surgery is being used to treat various disorders such as degenerative disc disease, (discs or cushion pads between your vertebrae shrink causing wearing of the disc) and  cervical deformity (for straightening and stabilizing the spine)

Yes, cervical spine surgery is a major surgery it involves fusion of the two adjacent vertebrae in the cervical spine as this procedure is very safe this is still a major surgery.

During the Procedure (5 Questions):

1-2 hours.

You may stay in the hospital for about 4-5 days generally

It will take around four to six hours to do cervical spine surgery.

The cervical spine is approached either from the front or from the back, mostly anterior approach is being favoured for cervical spine surgery because it result in less disruption of the normal musculature and it is also being easier for maintaining the normal alignment of spine. An anterior discectomy and fusion is the most common method for cervical spine surgery. During the surgery, the disc is removed through a small incision in the front of the neck. The cervical spine can either be approached from the front or from the back.

Revision surgery are needed for correcting a deformity, the type of revision surgery depends on the type of problem you are having. The incidence of complications is being higher than seen in first time after procedure. It is more difficult to relieve pain and to restore the function of nerve in revision surgery.

Post the Procedure (12 Questions):

By 4 to 6 weeks after lumbar fusion surgery, most patients are cleared to return to work.

As such there are no problems beacuse the patient starts playing after 6 months.

Yes, it will go away after the surgery.

The grip will be restored after 4-6 weeks.

The individual will start recovering from 2 weeks and can play games and resume normal routine within 4-6 months.

Yes after the duration of 6 months it is possible.

No, it will not get affected.

Some of the possible complications of the surgery includes injury to the spinal cord, nerves, esophagus, carotid artery or vocal cords, non-healing of bony fusion, instrument breakage or failyre or bone graft site pain.

The side effects of the surgery are very minimal in case of cervical spine surgery, but along with any other procedure there are number of inherent risk.  A cervical fusion will limit some ability to look straight up or down by extending or flexing the neck.  Patient may also experience some difficulty in swallowing or sore throat immediately after the procedure.

You should not do driving while you are taking medicines and you should not lift anything heavier for the first two weeks after surgery. You should not do any sexual activity in the first week after surgery as long as you feel comfortable.
