Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery
For Dynamic Stabilization And Back Pain Relief
Mechanical back pain may be due to a degenerated disc. When the disc is worn out and deemed to be the cause of the patient’s low back pain, surgical fusion of that disc space has traditionally been the approach to relieve the patient’s pain.
However, with fusion, the mobility between two adjacent vertebral levels is eliminated, thus causing the disc level above and below to “make up” for that lost movement, eventually leading to increased stress on the adjacent levels, and accelerated degeneration of the adjacent levels.
The goal of the artificial disc replacement surgery is to avoid this cascade of degeneration and to preserve motion (called arthroplasty).
