Anterior cervical discectomy is a procedure used by spine surgeons to remove a herniated disc. The standard discectomy requires an open surgery transverse or longitudinal incision. Today however the disc can be removed utilizing a minimally invasive approach not requiring fusion.
This procedure takes about 45 minutes under general anesthesia with spinal monitoring for maximum patient safety. The skin over the involved disc is identified with the use of fluoroscopy. A needle is passed through the skin and soft tissue for a short distance into the disc, and an arthroscope is passed over the needle into the disc.
The inside of the disc is then visualized ad approximately one half of the disc is removed, the posterior one half. This is performed with specifically made small instruments that remove the tissue. The disc is also softened and ablated with a radio frequency probe and a laser. A Band-Aid size dressing is applied and cervical collar is used for approximately two weeks.
Many patients have significant relief of their symptoms immediately following surgery. The patient is routinely discharged the same day and can resume normal physical activities in two to six weeks.
