Artificial Disc Replacement
Advanced disc replacement implants now available offer improved safety and a "Quality of Motion" that makes them truly deserve the title
Quality of Motion
Disc replacement technology has come a long way in recent years and thousands of fusions are now being avoided. Improved disc replacement implants now provide a natural "Quality of Motion" unlike any of the early disc replacement implant designs.
Unlike the early disc replacement designs, the advanced disc replacement implants now available offer improved end-plate fixation, reducing implant migration and the risk of revision surgery. These disc replacement implants also have motion control, to reduce post-op hyper-activity and long term complications caused by early ball-in-socket disc replacement implants, which have been found to stress facet joints, ligaments, and muscles causing future complications. These next generation disc replacement products also have added the safety of shock absorption, to prevent injury to adjacent structures.
Yes, we can now do multi-level disc replacement, lumbar and cervical disc replacement, all without many of the complications involved with fusion and early disc replacement products still in use today.
