Artificial disc replacement is an excellent alternative to spinal fusion for the appropriate candidate for surgical treatment of severe disc problems.
Artificial disc replacement is an excellent alternative to spinal fusion for the appropriate candidate for surgical treatment of severe disc problems. The surgery is indicated for patients with severe degenerative disc disease. As spinal structures degenerate, they may cause pain, limiting function and decreasing quality of life. Total disc replacement (TDR, also called artificial disc) surgery is a recent advancement in spine surgery.
The intervertebral discs attach to adjacent vertebrae as well as absorbing the wear and tear of the body’s movements. When the discs shrink, the spinal nerves can become compressed and cause significant pain.
If you are one of the many people who deal with conditions such as herniated discs, bulging discs or spinal stenosis, then disc replacement surgery is a consideration for you.
