Cervical Disc Replacement

Cervical disc replacement is an amazing new technology performed to replace a damaged, herniated, or painful disc while maintaining motion in the spine. Instead of performing a traditional spinal fusion, an artificial disc is inserted to replace the old damaged disc. The new disc actually moves and is designed to not reduce any motion, a problem common in spinal fusion procedures. A cervical disc replacement surgery is performed in an outpatient setting with little to no blood loss. After the surgery there is no need for a neck brace and patients are even encouraged to move their neck immediately following the procedure.

About the Technology

The artificial disc replacement offers painless motion to the injured cervical disc segment. In the past, the only reliable curative solution was a fusion. The problem is that the fusion removed any motion between repaired degenerative disc segments, only to stress the adjacent segments with stiffness and torque, causing them to wear down faster. The artificial disc was invented to stop the premature aging caused by fusion.
