Cervical Hard Collar


After a fusion surgery, many physicians recommend that a patient wear a brace to hold the spine in place while  the bone grows into the fusion site. For neck surgery,  a collar  is often worn for four to six weeks. After some lumbar surgeries,  a brace may be needed for three to six months.  Reproduced with permission from Aspen Medical Products.
