Artificial disc replacement is a modern, safe, and effective treatment for painful cervical discs. The procedure involves the removal of the painful disc and replacing it with a prosthetic implant.
In theory, these implants are similar to artificial hip, knee, and shoulder joints that surgeons have been using for more than 35 years to maintain motion and relieve the pain of arthritic extremity joints. However, there is a significant difference in that only one of the three joints that are present at each vertebral level is being replaced, whereas a hip or knee joint the total joint is replaced.
