C3-6 Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion with Bone Graft

This exhibit depicts a C3-6 anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with bone graft. The procedure begins with an incision over the anterior neck, exposing C3-6. Distraction pins are placed and midline C3-6 disc herniations are removed. Bilateral foraminotomies are then performed to decompress the cervical nerve roots. The vertebral endplates are decorticated with a high speed drill, and bone graft is impacted into the disc spaces. Lastly, the fusion is stabilized with the placement of an anterior cervical plate and screws.
