Anterior Cervical Fusion and Discectomy

An anterior cervical fusion and discectomy may be recommended for patients who experience spine conditions with either radiculopathy (irritation of the nerve root) or spinal stenosis, which sometimes causes myopathy (pressure on the spinal cord). 

At Cumberland Neurosurgery and Spine Center, our board-certified neurosurgeon performs traditional and minimally invasive surgery at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge to treat injuries and disease of the brain, spine and nervous system.
