Anterior cervical discectomy fusion performed by Laser Spine Institute’s Cincinnati surgeons have helped thousands find relief
At Laser Spine Institute we are committed to offering the highest level of care and service available. The pain and symptoms often associated with cervical instability can be devastating to a patient’s quality of life. Laser Spine Institute successfully performs more minimally invasive spine surgeries each month than any other spine surgery facility in the world, setting us apart as the leader in minimally invasive spine surgery. Our surgeons at our Cincinnati center specialize in minimally invasive stabilizations such as the anterior cervical discectomy fusion that relieve painful symptoms.
Historically, the only solution for patients experiencing chronic pain and symptoms associated with cervical conditions was to undergo a traditional open back fusion performed in a hospital setting. However, with the induction of new technology and medical advancement, Laser Spine Institute’s expert surgeons are able to perform minimally invasive stabilizations as an effective alternative to traditional spinal fusions. Our minimally invasive spine surgery is often the clinically appropriate first choice and provides many advantages versus open neck or back surgery. Our streamlined experience also eliminates hospital-associated costs and helps patients get back to their lives faster.
The anterior cervical discectomy fusion is performed through a small incision in the front of the neck. Gently moving aside the muscle, the surgeon is able to avoid the complications and extended recovery involved with cutting or tearing of the surrounding muscle or tissue, which is a common factor seen in traditional fusion procedures. Once the surgeon has located the area of the conditions, he/she is able to remove any material causing compression or spinal cord impingement, thus alleviating the patient’s chronic pain and symptoms. He/she will then stabilize the area by adding state-of-the-art hardware and a bone graft, preventing further instability.
