  • Disc Arthroplasty Spine

    Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore joint function by replacing a damaged joint with an artificial joint called a prosthesis. It may be performed to replace the joints in the neck region of the spine. The vertebral bones of the spine are separated by soft discs, which can undergo injury or degeneration. Disc arthroplasty involves replacing these discs with artificial prostheses and is also called cervical disc replacement surgery.

  • Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement Spine

    Artificial cervical disc replacement is a spine surgery to replace a degenerated (deteriorated) disc in the neck with an artificial disc. The artificial disc, like the natural healthy disc, is used to replace the degenerated disc. It restores the height between the two cervical vertebrae, enlarging the neural foramen (nerve passageway in the spine) and relieving the pressure on the spinal nerves. This stabilizes the cervical spine and restores normal mobility of the neck.
