The authors report 4 cases of Charcot spine treated surgically. In the surgical treatment, combined anterior and posterior with extensive debridement, autogenous bone grafting, and posterior instrumentation is the main therapeutic modality. Some cases with mild bone destruction could be treated by posterior interbody fusion. For the unstable, symptomatic Charcot spine, surgical treatment can provide excellent results.
