Id: NCT03643796

Organisation Name: University of Arkansas

Overal Status: Recruiting

Start Date: October 15, 2018

Last Update: September 25, 2020

Lead Sponsor: University of Arkansas

Brief Summary: This study will help the investigators learn more about the best way to give anesthesia for these kinds of surgery. The investigators will be using 2 different groups of medications that is commonly used in ACDF surgery, one group has a Narcotic, and the other group does not. The investigators wish to test whether a narcotic free anesthetic will result in an overall safer surgery, better patient recovery, and satisfaction. The investigators think also that eliminating the Narcotic from the Anesthetic regimen will allow patients to recover faster after surgery , and consume less pain medicines in the postoperative period.

Conditions:
  • Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)
