The spine consists of stacked vertebrae. Discs between vertebrae provide cushioning and allow for movement without friction. When discs degenerate over time, this adds stress to the spine by failing to protect the vertebrae.
Disc replacement is a spinal surgery that counteracts the breakdown of these crucial components to spine health by replacing worn discs with artificial ones. The artificial discs can be metal, plastic, or a combination of both.
Disc replacement can effectively alleviate pain, improve mobility, and reduce sensations like tingling in the affected area.
