Cervical disc herniations occur in the neck and are usually the result of a medical condition caused by trauma or disease. Symptoms can affect the back of the skull, the neck, shoulder girdle, scapula, shoulder, arm and hand.
This book discusses the surgical management of a herniated cervical intervertebral disc. Beginning with an introduction to the clinical and applied anatomy of subaxial cervical spine, the following chapters examine surgical procedures for different spinal diseases and disorders. The final chapter examines the advantages and disadvantages of anterior and posterior surgical approaches.
With contributions from recognised authors from Europe, the USA and Asia, this manual includes more than 250 colour images and illustrations.
