Enjoy: In a properly selected patient, an acdf can be a remarkably successful procedure. Hopefully you will enjoy tremendous pain relief and will follow your surgeons postoperative protocol.

Common procedure: An anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with instrumentation is a common procedure to address cervical disc herniations, degenerative spondylosis and occasional to treat instability from trauma. A fusion will eliminate the motion at the involved joint segments. Most patients do well. For very good information and videos, check out spine-health.Com.
