What should I tell my doctor before the cervical foraminotomy?

There are multiple aspects you will need to discuss with your doctor before undergoing cervical foraminotomy.

To help your doctor assess the possible risks that might arise from cervical foraminotomy, you need to provide the following information:

  • the medications you are currently taking
  • any allergies you have
  • any conditions you suffer from (diabetes, high blood pressure etc.)
  • any previous health issues such as blood clots, heart attacks, fractures
  • a complete list of the surgical procedures you've undergone so far
