DISC REPLACEMENT SURGERY IN FLORIDA
Work with a Skilled Miami Spine Specialist
If a worn disc in your lower back is the primary cause of your back pain, you may be a candidate for disc replacement surgery. This procedure involves replacing the problematic disc with an artificial replacement made of medical-grade metal and plastic. As a newer procedure, anyone considering disc replacement surgery should consult with a Miami spine surgeon skilled in innovative technologies aimed at relieving back pain.
Alexander Bone & Spine Institute was founded in 2011, and has quickly become a respected spinal, back, and neck care provider in South Florida. Our affiliations with numerous area hospitals and outpatient clinics ensure that you receive the highest standard of care when you are dealing with a difficult back pain situation.
Can I Get Disc Replacement Surgery?
Disc replacement surgery is an alternative to spinal fusion surgery that would bind two vertebrae together.
There are specific criteria that determine whether you would be a good candidate to receive this type of procedure:
- You are free from any spinal deformities
- Your back pain is associated with one or two spinal discs
- You have never received spinal surgery
- You are not significantly overweight
- You have no joint disease or nerve compression
If you are a good candidate for the procedure, it may be worthwhile to consider. A team of surgeons will make an incision, the damaged discs will be removed, and the artificial discs will be put in place. This procedure may involve a short hospital visit, but recovery is significantly shorter than other back and spine surgeries.
