Disc replacement surgery inserts artificial discs in the place of damaged discs in your vertebrae.
If you have low back pain that does not respond to nonsurgical interventions, you may be a candidate for disc replacement surgery. Our specialists will use advanced imaging technology to determine whether one or more discs have broken down and whether that is the cause of your pain.

Discs provide the spongy cushion between the vertebrae bones of your spine. Artificial replacements can restore function and movement.
This surgery typically requires a short hospital stay but sometimes may be performed on an outpatient basis. There is usually some pain or discomfort at the incision site, but most symptoms go away within a few days. Patients usually need physical therapy and can return to normal activities anywhere from two to four weeks after disc replacement surgery.
