What is ACDF Surgery?
Inflammation and chronic neck pain that cannot be tamed with noninvasive pain relief methods, oral medications, physical therapies, or a combination of many approaches may need surgical intervention. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery can address herniated discs and disc degenerative disorders in the neck. At Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX, we see many men and women with neck pain that have tried numerous approaches to handle their neck pain with no success. Dr. Mark Valente, our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, performs ACDF surgery at our facility for his neck pain patients. By removing the damaged disc and filling in the newly open space with a bone graft, ACDF surgery by Dr. Valente can be a powerful combination against the pain. In a single-level ACDF surgery for select patients, this procedure can be safely performed in our outpatient, AAAASF-accredited surgical facility.
ACDF Surgery Reviews
"Great doctor! - I finally opted to have my minimally invasive discectomy after months of PT, shots, chiro which were ineffective in alleviating pain. Had it done this morning and already feel better than I have since late 2018. Nerve pain that radiated into my side and hip is gone. Back is a little bit sore but not as bad as expected and I anticipate a full recovery! Dr. Valente was great. I read a ton of reviews on many back surgeons in the DFW and chose Dr Valente solely in patient reviews and I’m glad I did."- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 18, 2019
