Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery

The gold standard treatment for single level cervical radiculopathy is ACDF surgery but it has been seen that these fusion surgeries carry a risk of Adjacent Segment Disease over the next few years. Thus for relatively young population a need was felt for avoiding fusion during such surgeries. The solution was found in form of disc replacement surgery which like its counterpart (knee replacement surgery) involves use of metal plates to resurface the adjascent bones – fixed in-between these metallic plates is a motion preserving device which is engineered to mimic the natural motion of a neck bone.
