Our German Board-Certified spine surgeons are experts in variety of advanced cervical spine surgery procedures and techniques to address problems in your neck.

Surgical Approaches to Cervical Spine Surgery

Depending on the condition and the best approach for the optimal patient outcome, our cervical spine surgeons in Dubai may access the spine either from the front (anterior) or back (posterior).  Some of these surgeries include but are not limited to:

Anterior Cervical Techniques/Surgeries

  •  Microscopic Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF): Removes a herniated disc fragment and fuses the vertebrae for stability, often performed with a minimally invasive microscope.
  • Microscopic Anterior Cervical Disc Replacement (ADR): Removes a damaged disc and replaces it with an artificial one to preserve some motion.
  • Hybrid Surgery with ACDF and ADR: Combines fusion for some vertebrae and disc replacement for others, offering a tailored approach.
  • Cervical Corpectomy and Fusion (ACF): Removes a whole vertebral body (corpectomy) and replaces it with bone graft or implant for extensive damage or instability.

Posterior Cervical Techniques/Surgeries

  • Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy: Enlarges the foramen, the opening where nerves exit the spinal canal, to relieve pressure on pinched nerves.
  • Posterior Cervical Laminoplasty: Creates more space for the spinal cord by widening the bony canal without removing bone, often used for spinal stenosis.
  • Posterior Cervical Decompression and Fusion: Combines decompression techniques like laminectomy or foraminotomy with spinal fusion for a more comprehensive approach.

What is the right cervical spine surgery for me?

Our expert German Board-Certified spine surgeon in Dubai will assess and diagnose the type of surgery most suitable for your condition depending on the underlying cause of your neck pain and symptoms. Your medical history will be reviewed and additional diagnostic imaging such as like X-rays and MRIs may be ordered.
