Artificial Disc Arthroplasty

What Is Artificial Disc Arthroscopy?

Artificial disc arthroscopy is a surgical procedure to remove a damaged or diseased disc and replace it with a man-made vertebral disc.

What Conditions Does Artificial Disc Arthroscopy Treat?

Damaged or diseased discs can be caused by conditions such as degenerative disc disease or disc herniation.

Cervical disc replacement surgery may be recommended after conservative non-surgical treatments have failed to provide relief from symptoms caused by cervical radiculopathy or cervical myelopathy along with disc herniation:

  • pain that radiates from the neck to the arm
  • arm weakness, tingling and/or numbness
  • neck pain

Lumbar disc replacement surgery is an alternative to spinal fusion surgery for chronic back pain that is caused by a damaged disc. Implanting artificial discs instead of fusing or joining the vertebra mean that mobility of the spine can be preserved.

  • removal of the worn or herniated disc,
  • re-establishing vertebral height and inserting an artificial disc, and
  • preserving mobility in the spine.
