In this video from Open Operating Theatre, Prof. Richard Assaker, MD, of University Hospital Lille, France, operates on a 42-year-old man who had numbness of his legs and arms that progressed for 1 year. This was determined to be cervical myelopathy.

Assaker performs C1 lateral mass and C2 pars screw fixation in the video. He used 3-D fluoroscopic navigation for optimal and safe screw insertion.

This video is a teaching tool to help surgeons prepare for this type of surgery or they can use it as a refresher on the surgical technique and indications for this surgery.
