Artificial Disc Replacement
Artificial disc replacement is an alternative to spinal fusion surgery. It’s a procedure that involves replacing a painful disc that is causing acute back pain with an artificial disc that relieves pain without compromising the spine’s natural anatomical structure and while restoring physiologic motion. This surgery may be performed on the lower back or the neck. Artificial discs are structurally similar to the damaged discs that are replaced.
