Cervical Spine Registry

The Cervical Spine Research Society or CSRS is the global authority on cervical spine research. The objective of this diagnosis-based observational registry is to develop a clinical registry of patients diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy or cervical myelopathy over a 3 year period.

Furthermore, hospitals throughout the U.S. will contribute and provide data on cervical spine diagnoses such as cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy and various cervical surgeries such as cervical foraminotomy, cervical arthroplasty, cervical laminectomy, cervical fusion, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, cervical laminoplasty or a combination of above.

Data collection will consist of PROMIS Global-10, Neck Disability Index (NDI), Cervical Stiffness Disability Index (CSDI), and if the patient is diagnosed with cervical myelopathy they will complete the Patient reported modified Japanese Orthopaedic Association Questionnaire (P-mJOA). 

During follow-up visits, which will occur at 1 and 3 months, and annually 1-5 years post operatively, various items from baseline will continue to be collected with a primary emphasis on the questionnaires.
