Options for Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion
Spinal issues can be very painful and in some cases, they may be a life altering. One of the issues that can occur with your spine is for it to become compressed and for the nerves to be compromised as a result. If you have this issue, your Doctor may feel that Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion is an option that is open to you to help decompress the spine and to take some of the pressure off of the nerves. In many cases, your doctor is going to want you to have Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion as a last resort, feeling that there are no other options that are open to you to help you to deal with your pain.
