Cervical disc replacement is a new surgery technique 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.
Conditions to Treat with Cervical Disc Replacement:
- Herniated Disc
- Degenerated Disc
- Spinal Stenosis
- Pinched Nerve
- Neck pain and/or stiffness
- Radiating pain in shoulder and arm
- Muscle weakness in shoulder, arm and/or hand
- Tingling or numbness in your arm or fingers
