We are the leading center in the United States performing artificial disc replacements of the neck. We have successfully performed thousands of these procedures. All of our patients are able to go home the same day. We perform single, double, and triple level artificial disc replacements routinely. We even perform quadruple for 4 level artificial disc replacements outpatient. Very few centers in the United States perform multiple level artificial disc replacements. This is why you want an artificial disc replacement and not a fusion.
An artificial disc replacement moves. It has an immediate fix so neck motion is allowed immediately. This means no neck brace is required. An artificial disc does not restrict neck motion. The post operative motion to your neck is greater. There are no plates or screws in an artificial disc. So the dissection to apply them is not needed. This means less surgery and less bleeding.
