Cervical discs acts as a shock absorbers between the vertebras of the cervical spine (neck). Discs damaged by trauma or degeneration can cause pain. If part of the disc slips out of its normal position can cause pressure on the central spinal cord or on the surrounding nerves roots. Disc disruption and degeneration can cause neck pain or neurological symptoms that may include pain, numbness or weakness that radiates from the neck to one or both arms. Cervical disc replacement is a surgical procedure that requires removing a damage or degenerated cervical disc and replacing it with an artificial disc.
Person who is suffering from the following problems are considered as a suitable candidate for the cervical disc replacement:
• Persistent neck pain or neck stiffness
• Possible neurological symptoms that may radiate into arms.
• Weakness of shoulders, arms, hands or legs
• Numbness in the arms
• Not responding to non-surgical treatment such as anti-inflammatory medications, physiotherapy or epidural steroid injections
• No previous neck surgery
• Not having any active infection
• No allergies to the implant material
• Not suffering from osteoporosis
Most of the patients suffering from herniated disc, degenerated disc or arthritis in the neck do not require surgery and can get relief from non surgical methods such as anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy or cold/heat therapy within 4-6 weeks. Patients with cervical deformities make the neck vulnerable to injury, dislocation or fracture of the cervical spine. Surgery proves beneficial in such cases and helps in straighten, stabilizing the spine and relieving the pressure on the spinal cord.
Some of the advantages of these types of surgeries are:
• Improves neck muscle flexibility
• Improves motion
• Less hospital stay
• faster recovery
