What to Expect Following Cervical Spine Surgery?

As the years have progressed, and spine surgery methods have constantly improved and advanced with the times, more and more patients are seeing far better results than ever before. However risky spinal surgery might be, considering its being performed on one of the most sensitive areas of the human body, in recent years the vast majority of individuals who have undergone upper spine or cervical spine surgery, have experienced excellent results. According to Dr. Evan Baird, the top orthopedic New York has to offer, most patients can expect a drastic improvement in their pain issues, both in the neck and the radicular pain that radiates into the shoulders, arms and other parts of the body. And with such a decrease in pain, symptoms patients will slowly experience improved range of motion and over time, a much improved quality of life, allowing them to return to their normal daily activities soon after their procedure has been completed. Cervical spine procedures themselves can differ quite a bit from patient to patient, with some lasting as quick as one hour and others lasting as long as 7 to 8 hours. And with all different types of surgeries possible on the cervical area, some will require the use of fusion, which in turn means the use of plates and screws that will have a tendency to last much longer than a conventional discectomy. For those in need of cervical spine surgery New Jersey practitioners at Comprehensive Spine Care have performed countless procedures and been able to help patients deal with their pain symptoms and drastically regain their lost neck mobility over time. And as a top orthopedic New York doctor Evan Baird, has seen patients report no pain whatsoever immediately upon waking up from being under. Despite this, one major issue is that the strengthening of the weakened muscle tissue and other soft tissues can take quite some time, and require months of difficult physical therapy and exercise. In addition to the exercise regimen, there are quite a bit patients should come to expect following cervical spine surgery – read on below to learn more.

● Hospital Stay

When it comes to the various different types of cervical spine surgery, they will each generally require a specific length of time for their hospital stay – depending upon how severe or how thorough of a procedure each patient might undergo. Despite this, lucky for most patients because the majority of cervical spine surgeries will only require one or nights within the hospital – however, they will require some type of an extensive recovery time period as well. As a top orthopedic New York surgeon Dr. Evan Baird will recommend that patients make use of a cervical brace, in order to hold their neck area up and prevent any instability issues. Also, over the first 24 to 48 hours patients should slowly begin to stand up straight and attempt to walk.

● Treatment & Activity

Some of the most important aspects of the first day or two after a cervical spine surgery procedure will be to ensure that there is proper circulation and motion of your legs and feet. In addition, some patients will use a spirometer or inhalation tube that helps them to expand their lungs and prevent issues such as pneumonia.When it comes to activity after cervical spine surgery New Jersey patients must typically work with a physical therapist over time, starting from learning to stand and walk, to making more advance, common movements that you would make during the course of a normal day such as opening a shelf, reaching for something, as well as to begin static tightening of the thigh and buttocks muscles.

● Diet Plan

When it comes to cervical spine surgery New Jersey patients often ignore the diet, despite it being one of the most vital aspects to any surgical procedure, especially the neck. In the early days while you’re still in the hospital, your surgeon will likely order your meals. As a top orthopedic New York surgeon Dr. Evan Baird recommends that after that, upon returning home patients continue with a diet that is somewhat high in calories, fats, carbs and proteins as it will assist in your overall healing from surgery – both the bone tissue and the soft tissue.

● Pain Relief

One of the most important aspects of your recovery from surgery will be the use of medication to help relieve pain – most likely these will be narcotic pain relievers, in conjunction with anti-inflammatory medications and the use of a neck brace in order to keep your neck stable and in a way that there is little to no pain remaining following surgery.
