Modern Techniques

  • The surgical procedure is similar to the traditional anterior discectomy and fusion, except that after the discectomy, instead of inserting a cage filled with bone graft, an artificial disc is applied to preserve the mobility of this interspace.
  • The benefits of this procedure include the protection of the accelerated degeneration of the disc above (mainly) and below the disc replacement, the elimination of the risk of pseudarthrosis and that the duration of cervical collar immobilization is decreased.
  • In order to have a favor outcome, it is important to follow the predicted indications regarding the patient selection (young patients, spine without osteophytic spurs, stenosis or compromise of the spine’s coronal and sagittal balance, sublaxations).
