Go the experts! An excellent medical team headed by Dr. Arya N. Shamie and anesthesiologist Dr. Christina Nguyen. I recently had Anterior Cervical Discectomy (Decompression) Fusion (ACDF) C5-C6-C7 in UCLA Santa Monica CA. I was extremely nervous before the surgery specially after hearing all the “horror” stories about ACDF post op from my ACDF support group. Most people said they had a hard time swallowing and were on liquid diet for quite some time and their throat is very swollen. Having been in pain for quite some time, I convinced myself not to prolong my agony and face the adverse effects of ACDF surgery. My daughter woke me up along with the nurses. To my surprise, I can speak, swallow and no pain at all. I could hardly believe it myself because I was ready for the worst pain possible. I spoke to my daughter, “I can speak! I can swallow! I am not in pain! I was so thankful! I sincerely believe it is the medical expertise of Dr. Arya Shamie and his team that made it happen.
