Anterior Cervical Fusion

Anterior cervical fusion is a minimally invasive neck surgery that relieves neck pain and pressure in the spinal cord by removing a herniated or damaged disc.

The surgery consists of two parts: an anterior cervical discectomy where an incision is made through the front of the neck (anterior) instead of the back of the neck (posterior) to reach and remove the diseased disc. The second part is the fusion surgery. The fusion is done at the same time as the discectomy surgery and involves placing a bone graft or implant in the removed disc’s place in order to prevent friction and provide stability to the affected area.

Orthofix’s innovative devices and solutions are used in many of these surgeries to help patients overcome long-term neck pain and return to a pain-free life.
