Cervical artificial disc replacement is currently one of the most advanced and successful treatments for neck pain caused by a herniated disc, bone spurs or a failed neck surgery, such as a neck (cervical) fusion. Full neck motion paired with fast, long-lasting pain relief is the typical result.
With a 98% success rate, our doctors at NYC Surgical Associates are national leaders at performing cervical artificial disc replacements and offer industry-leading technology to provide patients who qualify the ultimate outpatient solution to their neck pain.
An artificial disc is a man-made device that is inserted between the vertebrae in your neck to replace your own natural spinal disc that is the source of pain. Non-surgical methods such as pain medications, injections and physical therapy are prescribed first, but when these treatments fail to provide sufferers with relief, a cervical fusion is often recommended. Unfortunately, fusions come with immobility accompanied by many side-affects, and have a low success rate.
If you want to stop your neck pain caused by a herniated disc, doctors will first recommend conservative treatment options. Within six months, if these methods fail to bring you relief, doctors will fuse (or immobilize) the affected disc(s). A fusion can offer initial repair, but the immobility and rigid results often create new problems that cause vertebrae surrounding the fused segments to overwork and prematurely wear out, typically leading to a failed fusion and the need for a second surgery.
The Bryan Disc Replacement is an alternative to fusion, removes all or a portion of the damaged disc to relieve pain caused by pressure on the nerves and to restore your spine’s stability and alignment. Cervical fusion, just as it sounds, fuses together discs in the neck to inhibit movement in the affected set of vertebrae to provide immediate pain relief. Failed neck fusions are very common, but it doesn’t have to happen to you.
If you suffer from neck pain from a persistent herniated disc, a bone spur that needs to be removed, or a failed neck fusion and need a single disc removed, the Bryan Artificial Disc may be the right solution for you.
Mobi-C disc replacement is a great alternative to neck fusions and is the newest device designed to replace cervical discs. The Mobi-C is specifically designed to provide a two-level disc replacement for those who have a neck condition that spreads to more than one disc, or have undergone a fusion and are unhappy with the results.
If you suffer from neck pain from a herniated disc, bone spurs, or a failed neck fusion and need one to two discs removed, the Mobi-C Artificial Disc may be the right solution for you.
