Faith Hill Recovering From Neck Surgery

Country music star Faith Hill is recovering from neck surgery.

Representatives for Hill confirmed the report to ABC News.

Doctors say the procedure Hill underwent is called anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, and they say it’s very common.

“We find it in elderly patients very frequently, but it can also occur in younger patients who have experienced some kind of trauma," said Dr. Joshua Bederson, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery for Mount Sinai Health System, who did not treat Hill. "It does occur spontaneously from time to time.”
