I had acute spinal cord compression at level C5-6 and had the ACDF procedure.it was a total success, I have no more pain or weakness! It will take a while to rebuild my muscle tone as I have atrophied over the years but I am anxious to get started. I experienced very little pain from the procedure. It was less painful than getting my wisdom teeth out! The entire staff is extremely caring and professional. I had to travel from Alaska and they literally bent over backwards with scheduling.
