The article offers information on several advance techniques for cervical spine surgery. It states that foraminotomy, which involves superior and inferior bordering of respective pedicles, benefits patients with radiculopathy. It adds that the preoperative positioning for posterior cervical laminectomy is similar with foraminotomy and conducts soft-tissue dissection more extensively. Moreover, atlantoaxial fusions are use for patients with severe cervical cord compression and traumatic injuries.
