What is Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy?

What is Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy?

Dr. Donald Corenman, a spine surgeon, presents movie " What is Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy? " Posterior cervical foraminotomy is a technique to decompress the cervical nerve root without a fusion to reduce neck pain. The approach is from the back of the neck and the decompression takes off some of the lamina and the medial half of the facet. It is used for herniated discs in the foramen, compressing the nerve, and is not a good technique for bone spur formation or herniations as this is where the spinal cord is located. It will not work for neck pain.

How to Read a MRI of Cervical Nerve Compression...

Dr. Donald Corenman created this video "Understanding an MRI of Cervical Nerve Compression" to help primary care physicians or specialists, to learn how to read these specific MRIs. Understanding an MRI of cervical nerve compression that may ultimately cause neck pain becomes crucial because just because there might be a compressed nerve, doesn't necessarily mean there will be symptoms. This is why the patient physical examination is so important. Within the cervical spine, the foramen (or holes the nerves exit from) take some time to visualize and understand what is normal and what is narrowed or compressed. 
The uncovertebral joint can enlarge by bone spur formation and can compress the nerve. A disc herniation can also compress the nerve and that has a different appearance from the uncovertebral joint spur. Understanding an MRI of cervical nerve compression will help accurately diagnose the condition at hand.

Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy

Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy

Dr. Donald Corenman, a spine surgeon, presents a minimally invasive posterior cervical foraminotomy for herniated disc neck surgery. This patient developed a disc herniation in his neck that compressed the nerve root causing significant neck pain, arm pain and weakness. In this situation with a disc herniation, the patient had a choice of an ACDF (anterior cervical decompression and fusion - or a posterior cervical foraminotomy. He elected the to have the foraminotomy. Posterior cervical foraminotomy is performed through a small tube (minimally invasive) under a microscope. In this video, note that the lamina is exposed, a small opening is make with a burr and the nerve root is compressed using very small probes and tools. For patients who have herniated disc neck surgery using this method, recovery is very quick. There is a small chance of another disc herniation (recurrent herniation) in the future as the hole in the disc wall does not heal.

I have devoted my long professional career to technology harvesting of innovation in medicine and new technologies in surgery. One of the most difficult barriers to innovation has been the real-time access to information about the rapidly emerging new technologies. It is this inefficiency in the timely availability of announcements of new discoveries that has slowed the diffusion of new technologies and impaired their early adoption.. MEDtube is a powerful new platform that provides healthcare professionals a much more immediate exposure to such new technologies. MEDtube is a welcome addition of rapid access to trusted healthcare knowledge and early discovery which is as much of a game-changers as the innovations which they report.

MEDtube is empowering professionals from all over the world and providing them secure environment to communicate. Different techniques can be discussed and evaluated, like mesh or no-mesh approach in hernia treatment. This platform plays an important role in innovation in medicine and I look forward to your great success . All the best to the MEDtube team!

Mohan Desarda,

Chief of Hernia Center, Poona Hospital & Research Center

I was excited to discover MEDtube during my online research for video content in ortopedics. Such project was missing. Professional medical education requires more open and innovative approach. I will use the platform in my teaching activities and publish own content. I look forward to joint projects with MEDtube and promise my personal support in Hong Kong and continental China. Good luck!
