Artificial Disc Institute
There was a time when patients suffering from chronic degenerative disc conditions had very few treatment options. While spinal fusions are still common, new advances in artificial disc implants allow for alternative treatments that can reduce the risk of spinal fusion complications, such as limited range of motion.
Artificial discs may offer benefits, such as:
- Greater flexibility
- Increased functionality and range of motion
- Limited transference of stress onto remaining discs (causing the remaining discs to fail)
- Relief of debilitating pain
- Greater spinal stability
