Our Level One Trauma Center is staffed with doctors and neurosurgeons who are experts in orthopedic emergencies. We will work quickly to determine the severity of your cervical fracture and develop a customized plan for treating your immediate trauma and helping you heal.

Overview

Cervical fractures should be immobilized immediately. Once our doctors have diagnosed the extent of your injury, we may recommend surgery to repair your fractures. We may also prescribe medicine and a comprehensive rehabilitation plan to control your pain and inflammation and reduce the damage to your nerve cells. You may have to wear a neck collar or special brace while your neck heals.
