Anterior Cervical Discectomy Fusion Procedure,
Recovery Care
  • The Procedure
  • ACDF is typically performed under general
    anesthesia, and the procedure usually takes about
    1-2 hours to complete. Here are the basic steps
    involved in the procedure
  • Incision A small incision is made in the front
    of the neck to access the cervical spine.
  • Discectomy The damaged or herniated disc is
    removed from the neck, relieving pressure on the
    spinal cord or nerve roots.
  • Fusion A bone graft is inserted into the space
    where the disc was removed, promoting new bone
    growth and fusing the adjacent vertebrae. Metal
    plates or screws are also used to provide
    additional stability and support.
  • Closure The incision is closed with sutures or
    staples, and a bandage is applied to the neck.

  • Recovery and Care
  • After ACDF, patients usually spend a few days in
    the hospital for observation and pain management.
    Here are some important things to know about the
    recovery process
  • Pain Pain after ACDF is common and can be
    managed with medication prescribed by your
    doctor.
  • Post-Op Care Follow your doctors instructions
    carefully, including wound care and physical
    therapy exercises.
  • Full Recovery It may take several weeks or
    months to fully recover from ACDF. During this
    time, its important to avoid heavy lifting,
    bending, or twisting your neck, and to use a neck
    brace or collar as directed.

  • Anterior Posterior for Scoliosis Correction UK
  • Scoliosis is a spinal deformity that causes the
    backbone to curl sideways.
  • In some cases, surgery may be necessary to
    correct scoliosis and prevent further progression
    of the condition. There are two main types of
    surgery for scoliosis anterior and posterior.
  • Anterior scoliosis correction involves accessing
    the spine from the front of the body, while
    posterior correction involves accessing the spine
    from the back.
  • The choice of surgery depends on several factors,
    including the location and severity of the curve,
    the patients age and health, and the surgeons
    expertise.
