Artificial Disc Replacement

Artificial Disc Replacement – Surgery Treatment

Pacific Spine Specialists offers artificial disc replacement procedures for patients in the Portland, OR area and beyond. Artificial disc replacement surgery consists of removing a painful disc and replacing it with a artificial disc prothesis that has similar biomechanical properties to a normal disc. Most artificial disc protheses are made of metal and/or plastic. In general, the disc replacment surgery is performed through a minimally invasive approach to the spine and patients recovery very quickly. However, it is important to note that artificial disc replacement surgery is still a major spinal reconstructive surgery and that results from FDA studies have been shown to be similar to fusion.
