About Lumbar Disc Replacement Surgery

Lumbar disc replacement is procedure of the lower lumbar spine that replaces damaged, pain-inducing discs with stronger artificial discs. Similar to all forms of surgery, lumbar disc replacement is only recommended if all other non-surgical treatment methods have not created sustainable changes.

Benefits of Lumbar Disc Replacement

After patients undergo lumbar disc replacement surgery, they are often relieved of pain they’re experiencing in low back, hips, and/or legs as a result of herniated discs 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.

An additional benefit of lumbar disc replacement over discectomy and fusion is preserving greater range of motion in the low back and spine. This surgical procedure 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.
