ProFootball Weekly – May 25 Dr. Sheeraz Qureshi: “Procedure On Neck Similar To One Manning Had Last Year”
Dr. Sheeraz Qureshi, an expert on sports medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, discussed Peyton Manning's neck procedure. Dr. Qureshi said the procedure, a minimally invasive posterior cervical foraminotomy, uses a tube to remove part of the disc that is causing pressure on the nerve. "Traditionally, there have been other procedures done for similar problems that have required fusions. The particular procedure that Manning had is a good one because it takes pressure off the nerve while still allowing him to have full range of motion of his neck without any restriction." Learn more.
