On normal herniated of the cervical spine, we carry out surgeries from the front. The surgeon makes a 3 centimeter long incision on the side of the throat. That suffices in moving the neck tissue to the side and reaching the cervical spine. The spinal disc is grabbed from the front and moved out of the intervertebral space. Through this intervertebral space, also back part of the intervertebral disc will be seized and removed.
A place holder or a prosthetic can replace it.
