What is Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion?

This is surgery to alleviate pressure and pain caused by a damaged cervical disc in the neck.

When a disc in the neck region of the spine becomes ruptured or bursts as a result of damage to the surface, the soft material inside the disc comes out, hardens and can press on the nerves which run through the spinal column.

Pain is often felt as burning and may be accompanied by tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness in the neck, shoulders arms and hands.

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal. Every nerve connecting the brain with the body passes through this spinal canal. Spinal stenosis consequently affects the function central nervous system.
