When I first had this surgery done and I found this web site I had no idea what ACDF stood for so I thought I should post this so it comes up in search results.

ACDF = Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

Anterior = In this case the front of the throat.
Cervical = of or pertaining to the neck.
Discectomy = A surgical procedure in which the central portion of an intervertebral disc, the nucleus pulposus, which is causing pain by stressing the spinal cord or radiating nerves, is removed.
Fusion = The slow process of the bone graft joining the vertebrae together
