Artificial discs are used to replace a disc in the spine to restore normal movement as much as possible. Although this technology has been around for years, more recent advancement in products that are durable and less cumbersome have made these new additions much more attractive.
This is a treatment option for those who are experiencing pain that did not subside after using non-surgical methods such as medication, physical therapy, injections, or chiropractic care.
- Painful lumbar discs
- Artificial discs greatly reduce the load and motion that traditional disc fusion surgery puts on the discs above and below the fusion.
- The patient's flexibility after receiving artificial discs is greater.
- Patients also have a much higher chance of returning to normal activity post-recovery.
Artificial disc surgery is a method that may produce a better outcome and recovery when compared to traditional disc fusions. Although not for every patient, the doctors at GHNC can help educate you on its potential benefits such as increased quality of life and the ability to return to normal activity post-procedure.
