I hope you won't mind a layperson asking for information.  My aunt has 
degeration of the spinal column.  She has been told that her cervical spine has 
become very unstable.  A minor whiplash could detach her spine and 
paralysis would occur.  She has been told of a surgery that would consist of 
small plates and  screws to support and stablize her neck.  I don't know the 
proper name for the surgery - but any and all info would be appreciated!
