Disc Replacement Surgery NJ


Benefits of Disc Replacement Surgery

Damaged discs in the spine can irritate the roots of spinal nerves. These nerves, which are located in the spinal cord near the disc, are what trigger pain signals (which can stem down limbs of the body.) By removing problematic discs, pressure on the nerve is minimized, helping to relieve the paint associated with the damaged disc.

In many cases, the primary purpose of artificial disc replacement surgery is to relieve patients of pain in the arms, shoulders, and neck. Further, some instances that demand disc replacement surround the lumbar spine as well. For most patients, the need for this surgical procedure is to provide pain relief as a result of disc herniation or degenerative disc conditions.

Cervical disc replacement surgery, in particular, can be extremely beneficial compared to other forms of surgery. A common reason why many patients choose cervical disc replacement surgery over anterior lumbar discectomy and fusion is that they experience greater range of motion in the neck. As a result, healing time can be minimized and residual effects on other parts of the spine will be reduced.

Artificial disc replacement surgery is usually only recommended as a last resort treatment when other options have not worked. This being said, Dr. Rovner provides his patients with some of the absolute best disc replacement surgery NJ has to offer.

The experienced spine surgeon will gently and safely move aside any tissues to access the damaged disc. After fully removing the damaged disc, the surgeon will then insert and secure the artificial disc before closing.
