Objective: Anterior cervical microdiscectomy (ACD) is an established surgical method to treat cervical disc disease. Since ACD changes the natural distribution of biomechanical forces, grafts are often used. The most commonly used grafts are a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) cage or a cervical disc prothesis (CDP). This study is a comparison of the early period results of single-level ACD performed using a PEEK cage or a CDP.
