Anterior cervical fusion involves an incision to the anterior neck, and through this portal,surgeons are able to enter the spine and disc spaces. Disc fragments can be removed, and an anterior metallic plate with screw fixation is applied, to widen and stabilize the gap between bones which had been affected by the disc collapse.
