Abstract

Cervical radiculopathy is a well-known cause for significant neck pain and disability, with a reported annual incidence of 83.2 cases per 100,000 population (1). Although a majority of patients recover with non-operative management, surgical intervention may eventually be needed in those who respond poorly to conservative treatment or develop neuro-deficit (2).
