skin cancer surgery pre-ACDF 4 level surgery
I am scheduled to have surgery for a malignant lesion on the back my neck 8 days before my 4 level ACDF. It will be a Moh's procedure, removing layers of tissues until no malignancy is found. Since this will be on the back of my neck, will it be a problem for the ACDF surgery?
My main concern has been with recovery wearing a collar, and NS will not know what kind (hard or soft) until during surgery.
