Dr. Wang shares when a woman can return to work after having cervical spine fusion surgery.

Dr. Wang:
A patient is off work, a lot of it depends on the type of work they do. Now obviously if they are a heavy laborer and their job is very physical, they will probably be off work until they have recuperated and rehab the musculature. They have a desk job or something that’s very kind of light physical demands, they can go back to work in a few days and obviously it depends on the patient. The patient has to feel up to it.
