Disc Replacement Surgery
When compared to conventional spinal fusion surgery, artificial disc replacement surgery in the neck or back provides many benefits:
Preserves range of motion
for a more natural feeling in the neck or back
of discs above and/or below the affected disc(s)
Offers a faster recovery
so patients can return to activities sooner
Why Artificial Disc Replacement?
“Historically, most cervical surgeries result in fusion, which provides pain relief, but at a cost of loss of motion and higher risk of additional future surgeries. Recent clinical studies have shown that 4 years after cervical fusion, the risk of adjacent level degeneration is increased by nearly three-fold compared to disc replacement.
The Disc Replacement Center at Jordan Valley Medical Center offers an alternative—artificial disc replacement, which provides pain relief and preserves motion and function.”
I trust Dr. K and his staff. He knows what’s best for me. This is what he does, I was in safe hands.
I am a huge fan. I would highly recommend disc replacement surgery.
I wasn’t feeling sore from the surgery, nothing, all my pain gone.
I don’t feel like I have any restrictions on my movement. I garden, ride my bike, climb ladders… whatever I did before I still do now.
From the moment I woke up I had absolutely zero pain.
