program details
Depending on the extent of the lesion, a 4 to 8 cm vertical incision is made in the posterior neck under general anesthesia, and the necessary extent is developed, preserving as much muscle attachment to the bone as possible. Using a surgical microscope, the bone is carefully removed and the spinal cord is decompressed. The opertion time is 1-2 hours and the patient is kept in bed for 2 days after the surgery and will be able to walk from the third day. Patients are discharged from the hospital after the wound has settled 10 days after surgery. The average number of surgeries performed during the last three years was 211 per year. Cervical spine surgery cannot completely eliminate symptoms. Numbness, pain, and other paralysis can remain. Although rare, it is possible for paralysis to worsen. Postoperative infection occurs in a few patients. In those cases, as reoperation under general anesthesia is required, hospital stay is prolonged. In 2021, the infection rate was 3.0%.
