Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion

Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure to treat a herniated disc in the cervical or neck region. The goal of surgery is to remove the damaged spinal disc or bony overgrowths compressing the nerve roots in the spinal cord and then fusing the adjacent vertebrae by replacing the disc space with bone graft. This procedure is performed by approaching the spine anteriorly from the front of your neck.
