You may be a good candidate for an ACDF if you experience severe neck pain, weakness, or numbness that prevents you from participating in normal daily activity. If your neck symptoms do not improve after four weeks of non-surgical treatments or a physical examination shows you have motion loss, abnormal feeling, or weakness that will likely improve surgery.
Used To Treat These Conditions
The majority of patients will notice immediate improvement of some or all of their symptoms while other symptoms may improve more gradually. A positive attitude and following your doctor’s post-surgery instructions will contribute to a satisfactory outcome.
