The article discusses the recent developments in cervical spine treatment as of 2011. It mentions a study of cervical myelopathy which showed a significant result following the determination of differences of anterior and posterior cervical spine surgery. It cites disc arthroplasty which continuously demonstrated a good outcome as cervical spine therapy. It also notes atlantoaxial arthrodesis which is proven to be an efficient treatment for patients with nonrheumatoid destructive arthropathy.
