Cervical Fusion Surgeries have long been the standard treatment for many serious conditions of the neck. However, traditional fusions are outdated due the number of risks, extensive recovery time and substantial cost. Fusions also carry the risk of:
- Painful bone grafts
- Excessive bleeding
- Implant breakage
- Nerve injury
- Fusion Failure
Introducing: A Better Solution
Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement is a trusted, proven and minimally invasive alternative to traditional cervical fusions. Disc Replacement is also becoming the preferred treatment option due to its vastly decreased recovery time coupled with the eliminated need for bone grafting.
The vertebral fusion has been a mainstay of modern neck pain treatment for years. But it has its caveats- including loss of motion, a long recovery time, and occasional residual pain. Now with an advanced Artificial Disc Replacement, you can have painless freedom of motion without the negative side effects. Welcome to the next generation of cervical spine treatment.
Range of Motion
With traditional fusion techniques, the natural range of motion in your neck is greatly decreased. However, with an artificial disc replacement, you can enjoy the full range of your natural motion.
As you can see from these x-ray images, a fusion can be very invasive and almost barbaric compared to a low-profile, minimalistic artificial disc. Minimally invasive artificial disc replacement works so well that you will forget the disc is there.
Artificial Cervical Disc Replacements are designed to be as small and effective as possible. Without the need for bulky hardware, you can enjoy more freedom of movement over that of traditional fusions.
