Spine Surgery: Anterior Thoracic Vertebral Body Replacement

Back surgery for a fractured vertebra caused by trauma or tumor growth

An anterior thoracic vertebral body replacement approaches the spine from the front, removes and replaces a damaged vertebra, and stabilizes the spine. The procedure can remove painful pressure on the spinal cord and nerves that has resulted from trauma in which a vertebra is severely fractured, or pressure caused when a tumor has spread to the front of the spine and fractured a vertebra.
