The article presents an overview of trends which are being seen in 2008 in the surgical treatment of the cervical spine, which include the evaluation of new technology and a renewed focus on the understanding of old treatment concepts and postulates. A discussion of research which has been done on the effectiveness of cervical arthroplasty is presented.
