In brief: Hard to say

The treatment options for someone with the MRI findings you are describing are based also on the degree of problem you have had with it and also with the understanding that many people can respond to nonoperative care.
That being said, an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is the time tested surgery for that condition and is reasonably safe and effective. Thank you for your question.
