How is the cervical disc herniation surgery performed? Is the cervical disc herniation surgery risky? Will recurrence in hernia after surgery? Do I need to wear cervical collar after cervical disc herniation surgery? When can I walk after cervical disc herniation surgery? These are questions that we often encounter about the cervical disc herniation surgery. The cervical disc herniation surgery is performed under the microscope with a 1.5 cm skin incision from the front of the neck. The duration of the surgery is about one hour. A special material called prosthesis or Cage is placed in the cavities formed after the repair of the hernia in neck. The patient is followed-up on service after surgery and can walk about 4 hours after surgery. Patients do not usually need to use cervical collar after surgery. The patient can be discharged on the same day. There is no possibility of recurrence in cervical disc herniation after surgery. Because the spinal column is approached from the front, the soft tissue we call the hernia is completely removed under the microscope, so there is no chance of recurrence. The patients return to their jobs after 1 week. Risks related to surgery are low enough to be not seen if the surgery is performed by experienced hands.
