Anterior Cervical Discectomy

Anterior Cervical Discectomy is a type of surgery that cuts into the neck and vertibrae surrounding the spinal column to remove spinal spurs. This condition is known as osteophytes and it is caused by inflammation of discs in the neck. Typically this surgery is only necessary for older patients. Anterior Cervical Discectomy is only used when there are no signs of instability in the neck or spinal column. This surgery usually requires a hospital or clinic stay of 1-3 days. Recovery is usually complete within six weeks.
