What is an Artificial Lumbar Disc Replacement?

As we age or experience an injury, the discs in our lower back (shock absorbers for our spinal bones) can become worn or damaged. When a disc is damaged it can leak disc material into the spinal column which causes pain, tingling/numbness, and pressure on the spinal cord.

Artificial lumbar disc replacement removes the damaged disc in the back and replaces it with specialized, artificial disc technology that is tailored to the patient.

If you are suffering from diseases or damaged lumbar discs, contact Virginia Spine Institute today for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this surgery.
