Dr. Donald Corenman is one of a handful of individuals that are both an MD and doctor of chiropractic (DC). His practice with the Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO serves the Vail Denver area and patients traveling from the US and abroad seeking resolution for chronic back pain and failed surgical treatment.

This live spine surgery video shows an anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) surgery.

Dr. Donald Corenman, MD, DC (http://neckandback.com | 970-479-5895), is a spine surgeon in Colorado. He has been with the prestigious Steadman Clinic—Vail Spine Institute—for more than 12 years. He treats all conditions associated with the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. As a spine expert and spine surgeon, he is skilled at diagnosing degenerative conditions and injuries that are the result of sports and traumatic accidents.

Dr. Corenman is an eager researcher and educator on all topics associated with the spine. He recently launched http://neckandback.com for patients, physicians, colleagues and other spine surgeons to use as a 2nd resource when seeking out information on conditions and surgical options relating to the spine.

Dr. Corenman recently created this live spine surgery video (on anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) to provide an explanation of this particular spine surgery. The ACDF procedure is performed for cervical instability, painful degenerative disc disease, bone spur compressing the nerve root or spinal cord, herniated disc or even fracture.

The purpose of this surgery is to restore the collapsed disc to the original height before degenerative changes occurred, remove herniation or bone spur to free the nerves or spinal cord and stabilize the segment to prevent further detrimental motion. The spine surgeon will perform this surgery with anterior surgery (from the front of the neck).

During this live spine surgery video, an anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) is performed to decompress a nerve root at C6-7 in the cervical spine using live footage and animation. This is the companion live spine surgery video to "ACDF- Anterior Cervical Decompression and Fusion Explained," also videos by Dr. Donald Corenman.

Dr. Corenman is a dedicated spine surgeon and is happy to provide further explanation of the anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) procedure to researchers seeking information. Please visit his website for an in-depth look into this surgery and others. Dr. Corenman is happy to share his images and presentations for further research.
