Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)

Posted on January 22, 2018 to AOC Physician Articles, News and Press

Dr. Donahoe explains Anterior cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is one of the most successful procedures performed in spine surgery.

Have you been diagnosed with a pinched nerve in your neck? This condition can cause pain that radiates to the shoulder or arm. Patients who have not improved with conservative treatment including medication and physical therapy may be candidates for surgery. Patients typically spend one night in the hospital, and almost immediately after surgery are relieved from the arm pain, numbness, and tingling.  Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is one of the most successful procedures performed in spine surgery.
