Home > Experts > Question Question Posted by: Kevin Naude | 2013/01/07 ACDF - Neck vertabrae fusion I have to go for neck surgery in two weeks time. And I have done some investigation on different medical procedures. I come upon a procedure where they replace the cusion with two plates and a spring mechanism that is installed between the two plates. It is said that the healing period is much faster, the pain level far less and no neck movement is lost. My question is: Is this procedure available in South Africa and who can I contact regarding this? Would my medical pay for it and how much does it cost? I am very worried about any neck or back operation and would like some advice please. Not what you were looking for?
