Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) is a groundbreaking surgical technique that has revolutionized the treatment of spinal conditions. At iOrtho, we are proud to offer this advanced procedure to our patients to restore spinal health and alleviate pain.
Artificial Disc Replacement, also known as disc arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to treat certain spinal conditions, primarily those affecting the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions. The procedure involves replacing a damaged or degenerated spinal disc with an artificial implant to restore motion and function.
One of the most significant advantages of ADR is that it allows for the preservation of natural spinal motion. Unlike traditional fusion surgeries, where adjacent vertebrae are fused together, ADR permits the replaced disc to move naturally. This can lead to improved long-term functionality and a reduced risk of adjacent segment degeneration.
ADR is known for providing effective pain relief, particularly for conditions like degenerative disc disease and herniated discs. By removing the source of pain and restoring disc height and function, patients often experience a reduction in chronic pain and discomfort.
With same day discharge, recovery times following ADR tend to be shorter compared to traditional spinal fusion surgeries. Patients can often return to their daily activities and work sooner, enhancing their quality of life.
