Cervical Disc Replacement

Is Cervical Disc Replacement Right for Me?

When pain medications, physical therapy, or more conservative treatments have failed to provide you with relief for your neck pain, you might talk with your doctor or make an appointment with Southern Laser Spine for a consultation for additional treatment.

To determine if you are a good candidate for cervical disc replacement, your specialist may require a few tests, including:

  • X-Rays
  • MRI Scans
  • Discography
  • CT Scans

A cervical disc replacement is not recommended for everyone who experiences cervical pain. You might be a candidate if you have the following:

  • Pain caused by one or more deteriorating cervical discs
  • No significant facet joint disease or compression on the spine
  • Body size that is not overweight
  • No prior surgery on the spine
  • No scoliosis (spine deformity)

Am I a Candidate for Cervical Disc Replacement?

Most of our patients at Southern Laser Spine can expect the relief of pain in the weeks and months following this surgery.

Studies show that artificial cervical disc replacement can improve your condition, but does not necessarily completely eliminate pain. Before your surgery, it is important to discuss your condition with your doctor.
