Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical Spondylosis is characterized by a degeneration of the spinal discs that separate the vertebrae. These discs are vital to the health of the spine, providing cushioning between the bones. Degenerating discs are prone to herniate, or rupture, which causes the gel-like interior of the disc (the nucleus pulposus) to release into the spinal canal, leading to further complications.

Spondylosis is also known as Degenerative Disc Disease, or DDD. It can arise as the result of wear and tear on the spine over time. When spondylosis affects one or more of the first seven vertebrae of the spine (the neck area), it is called cervical spondylosis. As the condition worsens, it puts pressure on the spinal cord and/or the nerve roots located at the spine.

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Cervical Spondylosis
Cervical spondylosis causes symptoms of pain and numbness in regions of the body serviced by the compressed nerves, as well as pain in the local area of the diseased disc. Diagnosis is typically confirmed with an MRI scan, which can clearly show the degenerated disc and affected nerves. Spondylosis is a relatively common disease and is thought to be responsible for approximately two percent of all admissions to hospitals.

New advances in spinal surgery mean that patients no longer have to suffer the symptoms of cervical spondylosis, nor must they undergo highly invasive traditional open spine surgery and prolonged hospitalization. At the Bonati Institute for Advanced Arthroscopic Surgery, surgery is performed in an outpatient setting with only a tiny incision. The many benefits of this treatment include less pain, quicker recovery, less tissue damage, and fewer complications. The Bonati Arthroscopic Laser Cervical Decompression is a tested and successful method of treatment for cervical spondylosis. For details, please see www.bonati.com.
