Study recommends "more" surgery for a better outcome

In the management of degenerative conditions of the cervical spine, multilevel posterior cervical fusions extended to T1 are linked to a lower revision rate compared to fusions terminating at C7, according to findings from a retrospective cohort analysis in the December 1 issue of Spine.
