Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement
Considering Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement
Pain in your cervical disc prevents you from enjoying everyday activity. You have undergone months of non-surgical care, but your debilitating neck condition continues to limit your function, with no indication of letting up.
Consider the following:
You have severe pain in your neck, due to a herniated disc, bone spurs, trauma, or degenerative disc disease.
Your neck pain has not been effectively minimized or managed by at least 6 weeks of treatment with medications, physical therapy, and/or injections.
1-2 levels of your neck are affected by your pain.
If this describes your condition, you may want to discuss treatment options with an experienced spine surgeon to help determine if you are a potential candidate for artificial disc replacement.

Understanding Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement
In a cervical artificial disc replacement procedure, your painful cervical disc is removed and replaced with an artificial implant. The implant is designed to imitate the function of a healthy cervical disc, allowing a normal degree of flexibility in your neck—without the pain.
Artificial disc replacement is an alternative surgery to a spinal fusion. While a spinal fusion restricts your neck’s range of motion as it addresses the disc pain, artificial disc replacement maintains this range of motion.
