Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement... 3 Level Scared..... :-(

Hi my name is Dee I am scheduled for surgery on March 19th, I am very nervous/ scared etc... don't know if I am making the best decision. I am 45, degenerative discs, there will be no fusion. I have read and watch some very promising you tube videos and spoke with others but still and scared to death. Any success stories out there?



  • Would love to hear how you are doing after your surgery. My husband is considering having a similar surgery.
  • I only had 1 level of disc replacement. At C4 in 2009. I just found out on Friday the disc has moved over 50% out of place. I have to have it removed and a fusion done now. I am very sketchy on Artificial disc replacements now :(
