    Cervical radiculopathy frequently occurs secondary to degeneration of cervical disc and cervical spondylosis. The herniated disc material and the osteophytes compress the spinal cord and the nerve roots, resulting in clinical symptoms. Severe pain and neurological deficits often requires surgical intervention. Surgical management for radiculopathy of the cervical spine includes Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion (ACDF), cervical foraminotomy via an anterior (ACF) or posterior approach, and Anterior Cervical Decompression and Arthroplasty (ACDA). Surgeons tend to choose the surgical method that is appropriate to the patient’s needs, the pathological characteristic of the case, and the surgeon’s skill.
