What is ACDF?

In order to fix a broken or damaged disc, one option is to undergo an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACFD). This means that the doctor removes the damaged disc and inserts a bone graft to help fuse the vertebrae together once healed. ACDF is a surgery performed in-office or a hospital, but patients can expect to go home the same day or after a single night at the hospital or office.

Advantages to Getting ACDF

There are many advantages to undergoing an ACDF, including the removal of a bulging or herniated disc that is causing pain. After recovery, many patients notice significant improvement in their symptoms. The procedure is relatively uncomplicated, and you can often go home the same day. The incision made to your throat is usually just about one inch long, so others likely won’t notice you had surgery. Advances in technology have also made the recovery times faster. Smaller equipment is used by surgeons, which means a minimally invasive surgery. This will lead to a faster healing process.
