Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement

Learn about this procedure and watch a detailed video that shows you exactly what is involved.

When discs of the cervical spine suffer from degeneration and injury related damage, the surgeon may perform an Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement. With this type of replacement, the flawed disc is removed and an implant is inserted in its place. The implant is designed to relieve the pressure that the impaired disc was causing while refraining from restricting the movement of the neck.
