The artificial disc replacement surgery is a procedure during which our skilled surgeons work to extract an unhealthy or damaged disc, utilizing an artificial replacement to heighten and decompress the area after extraction.
What is our artificial disc replacement?
Performed at the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute, artificial disc replacement surgery is used as an alternative to spinal fusion surgery. Our skilled surgeons enter the affected area at the level of the damaged disc. The surgeon will use special tools to remove the damaged disc and replace it with an artificial disc.
The artificial disc functions as a replacement, adding height to the area and preventing future damage or compression. Because the most common cause of pain and symptoms is degeneration, compression or impingement, this procedure is effective in offering patients long-term relief postoperatively.
