The purpose of the surgical treatment for traumatic spinal cord injury is to stabilize the spinal column and to avoid secondary cord damage. Recently, many modalities such as spinal instrumentation and navigation systems have been developed. They are quite useful in the surgical management of cervical injuries, facilitating early ambulation, short hospital stays and an early return to work and normal activities. It is important to have a precise diagnosis for proper decision-making and to know surgical techniques in the management of spinal cord injuries.
