A fusion surgery is always done at the same time as the discectomy in order to stabilize the cervical segment.

Their team of surgeons are highly-acclaimed for their services and the comfort they provide patients undergoing these cervical decompression and fusion treatments.
This procedure is called an anterior cervical discectomy and allows the offending disc to be surgically removed.

Together, the combined surgery is commonly referred to as an ACDF surgery, which stands for Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
A specialist at the Spine Physicians Institute stated, “The anterior approach of this surgery, which means that the surgery is done through the front of the neck as opposed to the back of the neck, has several typical advantages: Better access to the spine and generally less postoperative pain.”
