What is ACDF, and how is it performed?
A minimally invasive cervical fusion is also commonly referred to as an ACDF and is used to treat chronic pain, nerve compression, and/or instability that originates in the cervical spine. This procedure is typically recommended when cervical spine conditions do not respond to conservative treatment options.
Although ACDFs were historically performed with an open incision, at OrthoNeuro our advanced technology and training allow most ACDFs to be performed in a minimally invasive fashion.
This means a much smaller incision is used, less surgical trauma occurs and recovery time is shortened.
The Board Certified Spine Specialists at OrthoNeuro are experts in minimally invasive cervical spinal fusion and have helped thousands of patients return to an active and healthy lifestyle following this procedure.
At OrthoNeuro, an ACDF may be performed as either an inpatient or outpatient procedure based on your Spine Surgeons recommendation.
If the procedure is performed on an inpatient basis, the hospital stay is usually only 1-2 days.
During an ACDF procedure:
Using our advanced minimally invasive techniques, there is very little surgical trauma and you are able to recover and return to normal activities shortly after surgery.
