Our cervical disc replacement procedure is a minimally invasive procedure in which an unhealthy vertebral disc is replaced by a new, artificial disc to relieve the pressure on surrounding nerves and help stabilize the spine.
The neck area (cervical) of your spine is made up of seven bones stacked on top of each other. The cervical discs are found in between each vertebra and act as a cushion to help the neck move and bend without affecting the surrounding nerves. If a cervical disc becomes diseased, the vertebrae might lose support and impact a nerve along the spine, thus resulting in pain and discomfort. During our cervical disc replacement procedure, we remove the diseased disc and replace it with an artificial disc to add cushion between the vertebrae and stabilize the spine.
Our cervical disc replacement procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional neck fusion surgery.
