Uncompromised Anterior Cervical Exposure
Anterior Cervical

The Thompson Retractor for Anterior Cervical features:

  • Elimination of shifting or “rise up” in the wound
  • Independent retraction and blade positioning
  • Reduced risk of esophageal and nerve injury
  • Low-profile, phenomenal single and multi-level exposure


“I use the Thompson retractor on every anterior cervical case, even single level procedures. The set up takes me less than 2 minutes and the improved exposure and solid non-mobile retraction provided is phenomenal.”

—Vincent Traynelis, MD
