Motion Preserving Disc Replacement
Total Disc Replacement surgery is a minimally invasive spinal surgery that is used to treat degenerated and damaged discs in the spine. In this procedure, the damaged disc is removed and replaced with an artificial disc. Replacing the degenerated disc with an artificial disc preserves the natural structure and height of the spine and also restores fluid movement and flexibility. The goal of this surgery is to preserve motion and ensure patients can return to activities.
- Like other minimally invasive spine surgeries, there are many benefits of total disc replacement. Some of these benefits include:
- Reduces damage and degeneration of other discs
- Reduced pain
Faster recovery time
- Less post-surgical complications
- Increases range of motion and flexibility post-surgery
