Revision Surgery For Lumbar And Cervical Disc Disease:

Two general types of lower back surgery comprise the most common lumbar surgical procedures: decompression and spinal fusion.

Two Typical Types Of Cervical Surgery

There are two primary types of cervical surgery namely LEEP procedure and cryotherapy. In these surgeries it treats the tissue using instruments and extremely cold temperatures to freeze and destroy it. Cryotherapy is done when the patient is awake. The cryo probe is inserted into the vagina and placed on the surface of the abnormal tissue. Compressed gaseous nitrogen flows through the instrument, making the metal cold.

Reasons for Cervical Spine Surgery: Cervical spine surgery may be indicated for a variety of cervical spine problems. Generally, surgery may be performed for degenerative disorders, trauma or instability. These conditions may produce pressure on the spinal cord or on the nerves coming from the spine.

Decompression Back Surgery involves removing a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and/or disc material from under the nerve root to relieve pinching of the nerve and provide more room for the nerve to heal (a microdiscectomy or laminectomy).

Lumbar Spinal Fusion involves using a bone graft to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn should decrease pain generated from the joint. Spine surgery instrumentation (medical devices), bone graft procedures, and bone stimulators are sometimes used along with spinal fusion surgery.


Complications are almost part and parce; of every surgery. But in this case the relevant ones are:

Injury to your spinal cord

Injury to nerves

Injury to esophagus

Injury to carotid artery

Injury to vocal cords

Non-healing of the bony fusion

Failure to improve


Bone graft site pain

Any of these complications may lead to more surgery. Other complications may include phlebitis in your legs, blood clots in the lungs or urinary problems. Rare complications include paralysis and possibly death.
