What is Minimally Invasive Anterior Cervical Discectomy?
MINIMALLY INVASIVE ANTERIOR CERVICAL DISCECTOMY is performed to reduce pressure and discomfort by removing a herniated cervical disc through a small incision in the front of the neck.
During a Discectomy procedure, the surgeon removes the portion of the disc that is herniated and protruding into the spinal canal. The disc space may also be explored, and any loose fragments of disc can be removed.
The space where the disc was can be filled with bone graft material. Plates or screws can also be implanted to increase stability.
