Selected Treatment

The patient was treated with a C3-C7 cervical laminoplasty. The roof of the spinal canal was split and hinged open at each level (eg, C3-C4, C5-C6, C6-C7). The patient’s own bone was affixed to create an expanded arch, increasing space for the spinal cord and nerves while maintaining motion.

Post-operatively, the patient was placed in a soft cervical collar for two weeks.
