Disc Replacement Surgery
Injured? Contact Our Orlando Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers for Help.
When a disc is damaged, it can lead to neck pain from inflammation or muscle spasms. In severe cases, it can lead to numbness in the arms from pressure on the cervical roots. Surgery for cervical disc issues can involve removing the disc that is pinching the nerve or pressing on the spinal cord.
Typically, a discectomy or microdiscectomy is done to remove the disc through a small incision using a microscope or other magnifying device. To close the space that is left once the disc is removed, an artificial disc must be inserted in its place. This looks like a real disc; however, it’s made of metal and can improve neck and arm pain as safely and effectively as a fusion with greater range of motion.
If you unnecessarily suffered injury to the spinal cord and now need disc replacement as a result, do not wait to contact an Orlando spinal cord injury attorney at The Trial Professionals P.A. During a free consultation, we can discuss your case and the legal options available to you moving forward.
Am I Good Candidate for Disc Replacement?
People who receive disc replacement surgery generally recover faster than those who opt for the fusion. However, not all patients are good candidates for disc replacement.
People with any of the following conditions are not candidates for disc replacement:
- Joint disease
- Allergy to stainless steel
