Default removal of bone spurring during cervical ADR

Hi,

Has anyone thats had ADR or ACDF surgery had bone spurs removed during surgery? If so do you know how it is done, and how was your overall surgical outcome? Has anyone had surgery from Dr Bertagnoli that involved removal of bone spurring along with the disc - and how did you fare afterwards?

It sounds to me like removing bone spurs could be a risky procedure compared to just pulling out disc fragments - what are others opinions on this - or is it fairly standard practice?

thanks,
Rob
