Artificial disc replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces an intervertebral disc in the lumbar (lower back) or cervical (neck) regions with a synthetic disc made of biomimetic plastics and metals that replicates the natural function of the spine for improved joint function and reduced pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Advantages of Artificial Disk Replacement are:
- Maintaining normal neck motion
- Reducing degeneration of adjacent parts of the spine
- Eliminating the need for a bone graft
- Faster recovery of neck motion
- Faster return to normal activity
