Artificial disc arthroscopy (or Artificial Disc Replacement) is a surgical procedure to remove a damaged or diseased disc and replace it with a man-made vertebral disc. The procedure is also known as Total Disc Replacement (TDR) or Total Disc Arthroplasty (TDA). The spinal discs are the cushions between the vertebrae that help absorb shock and provide flexibility to the spine. When a disc becomes damaged or diseased, it can cause pain, weakness, and numbness in the back, neck, arms, or legs.
Damaged or diseased discs can be caused by conditions such as degenerative disc disease or disc herniation.
Artificial 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:
Lumbar disc replacement surgery is an alternative to spinal fusion surgery for chronic back pain caused by a damaged disc. Implanting artificial discs instead of fusing or joining the vertebra means that spine mobility can be preserved.
