Neck Discomfort, Fractures, Dislocations, And Deformities Can Be Treated With Neck Surgery

When neck vertebrae (bones) move, the spine is at risk for injury. Sometimes certain movements can cause fractures, dislocations, or congenital deformities. Chronic neck pain can also be relieved through surgery. Posterior cervical fusion in North Idaho patients stops the motion between spinal vertebrae, stabilizes the spine after a fracture or dislocation, and can straighten the spine to repair a progressive malformation. An incision is made in the back of the neck and a bone graft is attached to the back side of the spine, which allows the vertebrae to fuse, or grow together. Occasionally metal pieces are also used to hold the bones together and promote fusion.
