Why Should You Consider Disc Replacement Surgery?

For many years, most surgeries of the cervical spine resulted in fusion, which, although it provided pain relief, patients often ended up with a loss of motion and a higher risk of additional future surgeries. Studies have shown that four years after individuals undergo a cervical fusion, they run a higher risk of adjacent level degeneration by nearly three-fold vs. disc replacement.

Significant advances have been made in disc replacement surgery for treating neck (cervical spine) problems. Artificial Disc Replacement is a highly effective and safe alternative to fusion surgery. The goal of disc replacement surgery is to provide pain relief and, at the same time, preserve motion and function that you might not normally achieve with a traditional fusion surgery.
