Gregory, are you asking how long a neck that has had surgery with a bone graph that has fused will last? It should last forever. Rarely things can go wrong were the fusion doesn't take. But once you have a complete fusion, it is just like having your verterbre and bone graph as one solid piece of bone. Have you had surgery? or are you having any sort of problems? Be more than happy to answer any more questions you may have. Take care.

ACDF C3/4 w/graph/hardware (2000), ACDF C6/7 w/graph/hardware (2004) 2010 ACDF Revision Surgery. Removed plates at C3/4 and C6/7 and put in bone graphs and plates at C4/5 and C5/6 with Corpectomy.
