More than 90% of people experience neck pain from damaged Cervical discs.

What is Cervical Disc Replacement ?


Cervical disc replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cervical disc is removed and replaced with a specialized implant called an artificial disc. It is designed to restore proper spacing between the vertebrae while preserving the motion associated with a healthy disc.

A single 3-4 cm incision is made on the side of the patient’s neck. Under the microscope, the damaged disc is viewed and removed (discectomy)and the impinged nerve is relieved (decompression).

The disc space is prepared and the replacement disc is carefully placed between the vertebrae. To make sure that the replacement disc is positioned properly and the positioning is confirmed under 3D C-Arm. The incision is then closed
