Artificial Disc Replacement in Houston

Retain Spine & Neck Movement

Artificial disc replacement is the process of replacing a damaged disc(s) in an individual’s spine or neck. These discs are made of cartilage-like tissues and consist of an outer portion, referred to as the annulus, and an inner portion, referred to as the nucleus. In most artificial disc replacement cases, the artificial disc is flexible enough to allow your spine/neck to bend normally. If you undergo fusion surgery, however, movement in your spine/neck may be limited. Herniated disc replacement is an alternative surgical option that replaces a herniated disc with an artificial disc. This procedure requires no fusion for stability and preserves all natural neck motion after healing. Replacing the damaged disc can also help to maintain the health of adjacent discs, reducing the risk of future disc deterioration.

To ensure you are a candidate for artificial disc replacement, we may conduct the following tests/scans:

  • X-rays
  • MRI scans
  • CT scans

Understanding Your Spine

Recovery for artificial disc replacement surgery is faster than a spinal fusion surgery and allows most patients to regain full use of their spines/necks. This type of surgery is ideal for individuals who are not overweight, struggle with back pain caused by one or two problematic discs in their lumbar spine, and do not have any deformities of their spines, such as scoliosis.
