Cervical is a section of the spine that starts from the skull and ends at the neck of the body. Any compression in the nerves in the cervical area can lead to considerable pain in the backbone. It is possible to cure this with the help of spine surgery. The spine surgery that focuses primarily on the cervical part of the backbone is called cervical spine surgery.

Now, if the cause of the disorder is the compression of nerves, then it is possible to fix the problem with the help of decompression. The decompression process or the type of cervical decompression surgery depends on the cause of cervical disorder. 


Cervical Spine Surgery, in top hospitals of India, starts at the rate of USD 4,400. However, the cost can go up to USD 7,000 depending upon the complexity of the condition and use of the particular procedure of the Cervical Decompression Surgery. The cost of surgery in India is one-fourth of the cost of treatment in any of the developed countries.

The proceedings of the surgery depend on the result of diagnosis on the patient. It also varies based on the choice of a surgeon or hospital.


What is Cervical Decompression Surgery?

Cervical Decompression Surgery is a surgical process that removes all the fragments that causes the compression of nerves near the neck. Doctors remove the trivial portion of the bone that is the root cause of the compression of the nerves in the spinal cord. The decompression process is necessary to relieve the pressure on the nerve roots and heal the pain due to compression.

If the situation demands the removal of more than one bony structures from the spine due to immeasurable reasons like lodging of the spine under the nerve roots or extra pressure on the nerve roots, the procedure demands the cervical fusion surgery along with the cervical decompression surgery. It is because the cervical decompression surgery affects the stability of the spine, and spinal fusion is useful in building back the stability of the spine. 

Infusion surgery of the spine includes fusing the vertebrae so that there is no loss in the bone strength after the decompression. 

 Under What Conditions Cervical Decompression Surgery is Helpful?

It is possible to get relief from pain using medicines and physiotherapy. But, when it is a spinal nervous disorder, cure without surgery is nearly impossible. The most common situation that calls for Cervical Decompression surgery is cervical spinal stenosis. It is a condition when the vertebral opening or the spinal canal is narrow in comparison to the normal gap. 

Cervical spine surgery is helpful to treat all the problems that arise due to spinal stenosis. In short, all the conditions that lead to :


  • Neck stiffness.
  • Body imbalance.
  • Nervous compression
  • Severe pain.

The Procedure for Cervical Spine Surgery:

There are different types of cervical spine surgeries to serve various spinal disorders. The condition of one patient cannot be the same as others. For the treatment of each situation precisely, there are six different types of Cervical Spine Surgeries. However, the surgeons decide on the type of surgery after a complete diagnosis of the patient.

So, the first step to begin with cervical spine surgery is a diagnosis. The X-Ray reports can provide in-depth reports of the spine. After the complete analysis, the surgeon decides on one of the following types of Cervical Decompression Surgery:

  • Cervical Laminectomy:

In this type of surgery, the surgeon removes a small part of the lamina. It can successfully remove the compression on the nerve. After the removal of a particular section of the lamina, the doctor fixes  rest of the spinal bones together. It is done using the screws and the titanium metal rods. After the successful completion of the procedure, the spine of the patient gains back the stability.

  • Corpectomy:

If the narrowing of the spinal canal results in severe pain in more than one disc of the vertebrae, doctor consider this method of Cervical Spine Surgery. In this process, the surgeons removes the affected discs as well as a vertebral column of the body. 

  • Microdiscectomy:

When the spinal discomfort arises because of overlapping of bone over the nerve root, the doctor takes into implementation microdiscectomy or microdecompression. It is a small invasive procedure in which the surgeon removes the portion of the bone covering the nerve root. If it does not resolve the issue, and there is considerable pain, the spine surgeon may remove the disc material under the nerve root. It is used against the nerve compression and for healing pain from nerves.

  • Foraminotomy:

A compressed gap in the foramen is also a reason for a cervical disorder. With this cervical decompression surgery, it is possible to increase the space between the foramen openings and relive the pressure from the nerves. Foraminotomy may or may not require the insertion of rod for the stability of vertebrae, depending on the condition of the patient.

  • Laminotomy:

In this type of Cervical Decompression surgery, the surgeon initiates with making a hole in the lamina. Lamina is the bone covering the spinal canal, or the doctor may also opt for creating a hole in the centre of the vertebrae; that is through the passing of the spinal nerves. It results in removing the excessive heaviness from the nerves and thus, makes it possible to get rid of pain in your spine.

  • Laminoplasty:

In this process, the surgeon makes two incisions on either side of the lamina. Doctors take this process into practice when the spinal canal opening is smaller than the standard gap. Now, there is a hinge on one side of the vertebrae and on the second side exists the hole. The surgeons then insert the spacer in the spinal canal. This spacer is made of bone, plastic or metal. It holds the spinal canal open and maintains the necessary gap.

Recovery Post Cervical Decompression Surgery:

After the surgery, the doctor shifts you to a recovery or rehabilitation unit where a complete medical team is available for your assistance. Here, the team guides you for medication dosage, your diet and specific therapies to improve your condition. 

In most of the cases, it is possible to get the discharge within seven days after the surgery. However, you have to take the prescribed medicines and drugs even at home. The recovery period is usually six to seven weeks.

Complications of Cervical Decompression Surgery:

Cervical Decompression Surgery is successful, usually 99 % of the cases. There are not any severe complications. However, if there is any complication, then it is not critical. The complications can be:

  • Failure of instrumentation.
  • Infection.
  • Loss of blood.

Undergoing the Cervical Spine Surgery through an expert spine surgeon and proper post-surgical care, it is feasible to avoid the risks and complications. In the recent past, there has been no case of failure of Cervical Decompression surgery. Also, the cost of cervical Spine surgery is within the reach of everyone.
