Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

Discs usually provide cushioning between the bones in the spinal column, but when discs become damaged because of age or injury, they can put pressure on the spinal cord, causing pain, numbness, and weakness in parts of the body.

Anterior cervical discectomy (decompression) and fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure used to treat serious pain from a herniated or degenerated disc in the neck. This procedure is performed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerves, as well as to stabilize the spine. An incision is made at the front of the neck to remove the damaged disc and replace it with a graft to create a spinal fusion. The goal is to eliminate pressure on the spinal cord and strengthen and stabilize the spine.
