Spine surgery is done to relieve neck pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness, restore nerve function and stop or prevent abnormal motion in the neck. This surgery is performed by removing a disk or a bone and fusing the vertebrae together with a bone graft in front of or behind the spine.
The bone graft is of two types:
Autograft: It is a bone graft, which is taken from the patient’s own body.
Allograft: It is a bone graft, which is taken from another person’s body and takes longer to incorporate into a recipient’s body.
The spine is one of the most important parts of the body, since it makes many different functions possible, such as movement and balance. This also allows for upright posture, protection of the spinal cord, shock absorption, etc.
The spine is a combination of the bones, muscles, tendons, and other tissues, which reach from the base of the skull to the tailbone. The spine includes the spinal cord and the fluid surrounding the spinal cord. Also called the backbone, spinal column, and vertebral column.

The top two vertebrae are also known as the atlas and axis, which form the joint for connecting the skull to the spine. This section is responsible for mobility and normal functioning of the neck, as well as protection of the spinal cord, arteries, and nerves.
The thoracic section is located at chest level, between the cervical and lumbar vertebrae. The vertebrae in this section, and serve as attachments for the rib cage.
The lumbar section is somewhere between the thoracic vertebrae and the sacrum. The five lumbar vertebrae are the main weight-bearing section of the spinal column.
The sacrum is the section located at the base of the spine and does not have discs separating the vertebrae, because its five levels are fused together. The pelvis is adjacent to the spinal column at the sacrum section.
