This procedure was developed as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion to better allow for both pain relief and continued motion throughout the spine.

Benefits of This Procedure

You’ll be relieved of the arm and neck pain you’re experiencing due to the herniated disc in your neck or degenerative disc disease. The damaged disc irritates spinal nerves that have roots in the spinal cord near the disc. By removing it, the pressure on the nerve is released and the pain will be relieved.

The main additional benefit of cervical disc replacement over anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is preserving more freedom of motion in your neck. It can also result in faster healing times and can decrease the chances of other discs in your neck degenerating.

Dr. Rovner will explore this option with you during your consultation. But he will only recommend it as a last resort when non-surgical treatment options have failed and if this is the appropriate treatment for your individual problem.

About The Surgery

Dr. Rovner will begin the surgery by making a small incision in the front of the neck. The windpipe, as well as arteries, muscles, etc., are then moved aside, providing access to damaged disc. The disc is then removed and the artificial disc inserted in its place and secured.
