A Cervical Corpectomy is a surgical procedure where the vertebral bone and intervertebral disc material are removed to reduce pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves in the neck.
It is often done for multi-level cervical stenosis with spinal cord compression caused by bone spur growth.
A Corpectomy is a more difficult spine surgery to perform than a Discectomy, but it carries similar risks. The surgery will cost approximately around USD 8,910 in India.
Typically, the surgery lasts 2–3 hours, although the time required for the surgery will vary. You will have to remain in the hospital for around two days afterwards. Further recovery will happen over the next six to eight weeks, after which you can return to light activities.
The success rate of this kind of surgery ranges from 80 to 91 per cent.
