Orthopedic Procedures

Cervical Spine

The first 7 vertebral bones of the spinal column form the cervical spine in the neck region. The neck bears the weight of the head, allows a significant amount of movement, and is less protected than other parts of the spine. All these factors make the neck more susceptible to injury or other painful disorders. Dr. Light is a Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon who offers highly specialized care and treatment for neck pain and other cervical spine conditions in California.
