Benefits Of Artificial Disc Replacement

The word "fusion" might strike fear into patients suffering from chronic neck pain and understandably so. Fusing together any vertebrae of the cervical spine, while necessary in some cases, can limit movement. The Spine Pro, Dr. Hooman Melamed, explains in this video how artificial disc replacement can be an effective, minimally invasive alternative to traditional cervical fusion. Dr. Melamed explains how the minimally invasive procedure is performed through a small incision, about the diameter of a permanent marker, with a lower risk of infection and minimal blood loss compared to traditional open neck surgery.
