Cervical Radiculopathy is a common condition that can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the neck, arms, and other parts of the body. If you're experiencing any symptoms, it's essential to seek the attention of a qualified healthcare professional. At our clinic, we offer both non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment options tailored to your unique needs. Our Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeons will first recommend conservative therapies, such as rest, medication, physical therapy, or injections. If non-surgical methods are ineffective, surgical intervention may be necessary. Fortunately, most cervical radiculopathy surgeries can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, which can reduce recovery time and improve outcomes. Our team of experts are among the most experienced in New Jersey and can provide comprehensive care to help relieve your discomfort and promote healing. To learn more about cervical radiculopathy and your treatment options, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you find relief.
Commonly called a pinched nerve, cervical radiculopathy refers to any disorder or disease that affects the nerve roots of the spine in the neck. These nerves originate from the cervical spine and connect it with your arms, legs, and body. Many conditions can result in a pinched nerve, including a herniated disc, spinal trauma, bone spur, or osteoarthritis. Athletes who play contact sports, individuals who perform manual labor, and older patients are at an increased risk for developing radiculopathy.
Our experienced Spine Specialists offer both non-surgical pain management and minimally invasive techniques tailored to your unique needs.

Symptoms of a pinched nerve can include discomfort, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected area as well as the extremities associated with it. For instance, cervical radiculopathy occurs in the neck and therefore pain may be transmitted through one or both arms. In some cases, you may have a feeling of the arms or fingers “falling asleep” or difficulty grasping objects.
There is a broad array of non-surgical and minimally invasive radiculopathy treatment options. Our extensively trained Board Certified Spine Specialists will begin with conservative therapies first, and they will only utilize surgical techniques in the event other methods prove ineffective. Your care and comfort are our highest priorities.
In cases where non-surgical treatments have not resolved the symptoms of cervical radiculopathy, our Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeons may discuss the option of a surgical procedure. Unlike in years past, most spinal procedures can now be performed using a minimally invasive approach that requires only a small incision and significantly expedites recovery time.
While there are several Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery options for cervical radiculopathy, the goal for any of these procedures is to remove the herniated portion of the disc(s), spinal bones, or other structures to alleviate pressure on the spinal nerves.
Our Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Spine Surgeons are among the most experienced anywhere in New Jersey and are experts in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgical procedures.
