Surgical Treatment For Herniated Or Bulging Discs

Spine Center Atlanta is pleased to serve patients with cutting-edge surgical treatment for herniated or bulging discs. Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion Surgery (ACDF), with and without plates, is a surgical procedure that can be used to relieve the pain and other symptoms being caused by an irritated nerve in the upper spine (neck). This surgical procedure is used to treat chronic and acute neck pain caused by a herniated, bulging or torn disc, disc degeneration, failed back surgery, a pinched nerve, spinal stenosis, radiculitis, radiculopathy and more.

During the procedure, a horizontal or vertical incision is made on one side of the neck. The soft tissue is then moved aside to reach the affected disc, and the irritated nerve is removed. At this point, the vertebrae may be prepared for a fusion in which a bone graft or metal plate is added to “plug” the opening between the two vertebrae left by the disc that was removed. In the healing process, the graft and the vertebrae grow together.

The orthopedic spine surgeons at Spine Center Atlanta are highly qualified to perform ACDF surgery and have used this advanced surgical treatment to help countless individuals find long-term relief from chronic and acute neck pain. If you have chronic or acute neck pain and have not been able to find relief from non-surgical treatments, call Spine Center Atlanta today and schedule an appointment with one of our spine specialists to find out if ACDF surgery is right for you.
