Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/11/2013 -- When it comes to finding highly experienced spine surgeons in the area of cervical total disc replacement surgery the team at the Spine Physicians Institute is unrivaled. Their fellowship trained experts have years of experience in treating a wide range of conditions that require cervical total disc replacement.
Cervical total disc replacement, also referred to as Cervical TDR, has become an FDA-approved option for surgically treating symptomatic cervical disc disease. The procedure is quite similar to the anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, the only difference being that the defect that is created by removing the disc from between the two vertebrae is filled with a disc replacement device. The device allows for motion between the two vertebrae to be maintained and avoids the need for a fusion.
A specialist at the Spine Physicians Institute stated, “Cervical TDR can be used to preserve motion of the segment and decrease the incidence of adjacent segment disease, and it has been developed as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion in the surgical treatment of degenerative disc disease. Overall, the clinical outcomes of cervical TDR in other studies have been acceptable, though the main advantage of the cervical disc replacement was supposed to be a decrease in adjacent segment disease compared to cervical fusion surgery, ACDF.”
While this is a relatively new procedure with less of a track record than the more traditional anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgeries the team full understands the various complexities of the procedure and confidently offers Cervical Total Disc Replacement to patients in the Red Oak area.
