Need cervical surgical explanation

My father has sever degenerative changes in his cervical spine and is getting cramping and poor balance in his legs. One doctor wants to remove the back part of the spine to give the spinal cord space and then fuse from the sides.

Can someone tell me the medical term for this so I can read on this? Can someone tell me a website that describes this? Has anyone had this procedure done?

Thanks in advance!
