Default Endoscopic/Robotic Out Patient ACDF

Hi there! Just joined this Forum. I have been told by two Surgeon's I need ACDF on 2 areas in my Neck I believe 4 and 5 (?) With bone harvest from my hip (because typically "smokers" won't heal with their own bone). I keep seeing the Becker Spine Institute and other web sites touting an Outpatient minimally invasive Neck Surgery that is done on an Outpatient Basis, no neck brace and less recovery time and so on. The essence of what I am reading is this is the routine now for lumbar areas but many surgeons are not trained nor doing this on the neck yet. I live in San Diego CA any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated.
