In brief: YES

Cervical disc replacement surgery is designed to relieve pain and maintain the motion at the motion segment from which the disc is removed and to decrease adjacent disc disease.
This accomplished thru one and two level disc replacement surgery.

In brief: Maybe

A cervical fusion can limit rom permanently, but some neck surgeries may be limited in location, such as one level laminectomies, and post-operatively, the neck can dramatically improve.
