Evolution of Cervical Disc Replacement

Cervical disc replacement, also known as total disc arthroplasty or artificial disc replacement is a procedure where a damaged cervical disc is removed and replaced with a metal or plastic prosthetic between two vertebral levels. This technique has gained popularity in recent years as it is a safe and effective procedure at relieving cervical pain and/or compression on the spinal cord. Typically done through a cosmetically appealing incision in the front of the neck, this procedure preserves motion at the neck with less failure when compared to neck fusion procedures.
