Could You Benefit from Artificial Disc Replacement?
Are you suffering from acute lower back pain? Have you come to find that an aggressive conservative treatment is getting you nowhere? Are you interested in learning more about other treatment options?
Artificial disc replacement surgery may not be something you have considered in the past, but it could be just what you need to eliminate your back pain once and for all.
Also known as ADR, pain relief is achieved by removing painful lumbar discs and replacing them with prosthetic implant discs made of metal.
Note: artificial disc replacement is best for patients who have little (or no) degenerative changes, as this greatly reduces the likelihood of postoperative pain.
While there is no way of knowing on your own if artificial disc replacement is the answer, it’s important to learn more about this procedure before doing anything else. For instance, you may assume that traditional spinal fusion surgery is your only option, however, you won’t know for sure until you compare the pros and cons of both.
