Artificial disc replacement is often used for disc herniations that haven’t responded to non-surgical treatments. A disc herniation can be very painful and restrict your mobility as the bulging disc presses down on your spinal nerves. Artificial disc replacement involves removing the affected disc and replacing it with an artificial device to relieve pressure on the nerve root or spinal cord.
This alternative to spinal fusion is beneficial for many reasons, including:
- No bone grafts
- No plates or screws used
- Improves range of motion
- Eliminates pain caused by pinched nerve roots
