I have a lot of concerns regarding a ACDF and now possible ADR. I am a 42 year old female and work within law enforcement in the field. My biggest goal is to not only to enjoy my life with my family i.e sports, boating and other activities snd returning back to work also.
I have heard a lot of positive information regarding the ADR now I found a video of an actual ADR being preformed at the Trinity Mother Frances Health Systems in Texas. During the 47 minute video it actually showed the surgery as they explained the procedure and answered questions. The web site is OR-Live.com.
Look in the procedure catagory for Cervical Disk Replacement. The web site is also full of information regarding other medical procedures. This video answered alot of my questions but also provides me with the education in order to ask the surgeon good questions prior to surgery (if it happens). Hope this helps..
