Jefferson fracture treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Jefferson fracture. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Jefferson fracture. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Jefferson fracture.

If you have been diagnosed with Jefferson fracture then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Jefferson fracture can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Our Location

We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Jefferson fracture

 

More details about Jefferson fracture

A Jefferson fracture is a bone fracture of the anterior and posterior arches of the C1 vertebra,[1] though it may also appear as a three- or two-part fracture. The fracture may result from an axial load on the back of the head or hyperextension of the neck (e.g. caused by diving), causing a posterior break, and may be accompanied by a break in other parts of the cervical spine.[1]

It is named after the British neurologist and neurosurgeon Sir Geoffrey Jefferson, who reported four cases of the fracture in 1920 in addition to reviewing cases that had been reported previously.[2]
