Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion is a spine surgery procedure that is used to treat a herniated disc in the neck when all non-surgical methods of treatment fail. During anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, all or part of the herniated disc in your neck is removed. It is removed from the front of your neck to decrease risk to the spinal cord and nerves. After removal of the disc, the space is stabilized by inserting a bone graft in between the vertebrae where the disc used to be.
