Cervical Total Disc Replacement
Degenerative disc disease is a common source of neck pain. It is a condition that causes the discs in the spine to deteriorate or break down. Artificial cervical disc replacement can be an alternative to spinal fusion surgery (ACDF) for people with degenerative cervical disc disease. Unlike spinal fusion, a cervical disc replacement allows more natural motion of the spine, return to natural disc height, and near normal stress absorption in the spine.
