Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

Dr Moloney usually does cervical fusions from the front with an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). This is done by opening up the front of the neck and removing the disc material in the disc space at that level. A spacer is then inserted into the vertebral space to restore disc height.

Following any major surgery it is important to follow the instructions given to you afterwards to get the best possible result. For more information see our After Surgery page.
