What Is A Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement?
This new procedure of CADR is minimally invasive and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As part of the procedure, the surgeon may remove the cervical disc and fuse together the cervical vertebrae found below and above the disc. Cervical artificial disc replacement may be preferred over traditional cervical disc surgery because it allows more movement and reduces stress on the neck.
How It's Performed
Next, the surgeon will remove the disc and any bone spurs from the spine to decompress the spinal cord and cervical nerve roots. The artificial cervical disc implant is then inserted into that space using specialized surgical instruments.
After the prosthesis is implanted into the disc space it is tested to ensure mobility and flexibility, the incision is closed with small stitches.
