Benefits of keyhole foraminotomy treatment for trapped nerves


This procedure uses a small incision (2-3 cm) on the back of the neck to approach the affected nerve. Under a microscope and using a drill a small area of bone compressing the nerve is removed. This procedure is over 90% effective at relieving arm pain. The risks of this technique are small and the risk of paralysis or weakness in the arm or legs is very small.
