I am scheduled to have a revision surgery for a non-fusion of my C5-6. My options were an ACDF with synthetic material or a posterior fusion. My neuro surgeon says he wants me to go with the ACDF and he is going to have an orthopedic surgeon help him this time since it is more complicated having to remove the plate and screws etc. I havent heard of anyone on here having the synthetic stuff done. My plate and screws are titanium. Can anyone give me any information on this or on the recovery time for a revision. I'm assuming its about the same as the ACDF I had the first time, but Im always surprised by what you can learn from someone who has already been there. Any advice appreciated.
