Dr. Donald Corenman is one of a handful of individuals that are both an MD and doctor of chiropractic (DC). His practice with the Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO serves the Vail Denver area and patients traveling from the US and abroad seeking resolution for chronic back pain and failed surgical treatment.

This video shows a minimally invasive posterior cervical foraminotomy for herniated disc neck surgery.

This patient developed a disc herniation in his neck that compressed the nerve root causing significant neck pain, arm pain and weakness. In this situation with a disc herniation, the patient had a choice of an ACDF (anterior cervical decompression and fusion – http://www.youtube.com/user/neckandback#p/u/17/yfSkOF_DAfA) or a posterior cervical foraminotomy. He elected the foraminotomy.

Posterior cervical foraminotomy is performed through a small tube (minimally invasive) under a microscope. In this video, note that the lamina is exposed, a small opening is make with a burr and the nerve root is decompressed using very small probes and tools.

Recovery is very quick. There is a small chance of another disc herniation (recurrent herniation) in the future as the hole in the disc wall does not heal. Recovery from this procedure is generally very quick.
