Cervical Spondylosis is the mainstay of this Orthopaedic Surgery lecture. Medical students are educated about the definition, progression, and clinical features of cervical spondylosis. Moreover, this orthopedic learning includes the explanation of cervical radiculopathy. The differential diagnosis and treatment are focused at the end of this V-Learning™.

Cervical Spondylosis is the condition of the neck. From a more medical perspective, it is a condition of the cervical spine. It causes damage to vertebrae, discs, and ligaments in the neck or cervical spine.
Cervical spondylolisthesis progresses with age. However, some other factors also contribute to its progression. In cervical spondylosis, degenerative changes start in the intervertebral discs with osteophyte formation and involvement of adjacent soft tissue structures.
The clinical features that are indicative of cervical spondylolisthesis include axial back pain and stiffness, altered dermatomal sensation, clumsiness in forearm and hand, radiating pain to the upper extremity.
Cervical radiculopathy is a clinical condition that is caused by degenerative cervical spondylosis and disc herniation. It results in cervical nerve root compression. This cervical syndrome provides orthopedic learning about radiculopathy in 6 cervical regions i.e. C3 radiculopathy to C8 radiculopathy.
The imaging technique used to visualize the cervical spondylosis is X-ray and MRI. Orthopedic learning of cervical spondylosis is made understandable by highlighting the MRI of a 46-year-old man and MRI of an 80-year-old man.
Cervical spondylosis is sometimes misdiagnosed with some other Cervical Spine Injuries. To avoid this ambiguity, medical students are educated about its differential diagnosis by explaining nerve entrapment syndromes, Rotator Cuff Injuries, cervical tumours, and thoracic outlet syndrome.
Once the diagnosis is done, analgesics, anti-inﬂammatory drugs, and physiotherapy are prescribed as conservative treatment. In severe cases, cervical spondylosis surgery is required. Anterior discectomy and fusion, foraminotomy, intervertebral disc replacement, and laminoplasty are the operative treatment options discussed in this orthopedic lecture for medical students.
