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.

After the initial physical assessment, you will undergo medical investigations on an outpatient basis to assess your spinal problem. Once the investigations and medical assessment are completed, the surgical procedure will be planned, and you will receive instructions to be admitted on the day of surgery.

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 ensure proper positioning of the replacement disc, its placement is confirmed using 3D C-Arm imaging. Finally, the incision is closed.

What is the process / patient journey for Cervical Disc Replacement surgery at IBS Hospital?

Day 1:

You are admitted to the hospital. The procedure is explained to the patient/ relative in detail and consent is undertaken. Preanaesthesia checkup (PAC) is done. Once cleared, the patient is shifted to OT for the procedure. Post-procedure, the patient is moved to the recovery area and once stable, the patient is moved to the respective room. There may be a bit of pain for which you will be given analgesics.

Day 2:

You will be observed in your room. The discharge process will be initiated. You or your relative will be provided with an explanation of the discharge medication and follow-up instructions. The patient is then discharged.

What is the post-surgery follow-up and recovery timeline?

You may be advised to see the surgeon after a week for stitch removal. Follow-up is also important to determine if healing is proceeding properly. Initially, some soreness and pain may occur, depending on the type of surgery that was performed. The  presence of bruising in the area is not abnormal.
