What is Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF)?
Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure used to relieve nerve root or spinal cord compression caused by degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, or spinal stenosis. The procedure involves removing the damaged disc from the vertebrae and replacing it with a bone graft. This helps to stabilize the spine and reduce pain. It also prevents further damage to the nervous system by reducing pressure on the nerve roots and spinal cord.
ACDF can help
- relieve pain,
- weakness, or
- other symptoms caused by a damaged disc in the neck area.
Patients typically experience relief of symptoms within days after surgery and are able to return to their normal activities within weeks after their procedure.
However, recovery times vary depending on individual factors such as age and pre-existing health conditions.
