Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

This exhibit illustrates in five essential steps, the anterior cervical discectomy procedure. It begins with an anterior approach to the neck making a transverse incision at the level of the second and third cervical vertebrae. Subsequent steps illustrates removal of disc material at the C2-3 level, preparation of vertebrae to fit in the bone graft, and placement of bone graft into the C2-3 space. A separate illustration shows an incision made over the iliac crest and two samples of bone graft harvested from it which are used to create the bone fusion between C2 and C3.
