Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

This procedure is done to remove herniated discs from your neck and replace them with bone grafts. This procedure will also fuse the bone grafts to the spine to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves that was caused by cervical disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. This will relieve neck pain and permanently relieve the pressure on the cervical spinal nerves.

Cervical Disc Replacement

A modern alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, cervical disc replacement will replace damaged discs with artificial ones to help you maintain neck mobility after surgery. This also may prevent degeneration of adjacent discs and need for further surgery in the future.
