Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery

Cervical disc replacement surgery is a recent advance in spinal surgery, allowing the surgeon to replace a diseased and painful disc without performing a fusion of the adjacent vertebrae. Doing so allows preservation of normal motion of the spine across the replaced disc and possibly slows the degenerative process in the adjacent discs. The development of this technology is still in progress. Implants which allow patients to undergo post-operative MRI scans should be available in the near future
