Reno Artificial Disc Replacement
Back pain and spinal difficulties can often be remedied with artificial disc replacement. Modern artificial discs closely mimic the discs in your spine, and function in exactly the same way. This form of neurosurgery repair is available on the cervical spine (neck) or the lumbar spine (back). Dr. Sina Rajamand at Battle Born Brain and Spine offers expert artificial disc replacement for patients in Reno and Carson City, Nevada.
Spinal discs are composed of annular layers of connective tissue with a soft core of elastic, shock-absorbing material. These discs are found between each of your 33 vertebrae. This amazing composite structure allows you to enjoy easy flexibility while maintaining a strong framework for the body that also protects the spinal cord.
Damage to these discs can occur from any number of sources. The most common include:
- Degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis
- Bone spurs
- Herniated disc
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal trauma
With new spinal replacement disc technology available, replacement discs can allow you to have the full range of movement and strength you had before any trouble with your spine began.
Carson City Cervical/Lumbar Disc Surgery
In the past, deteriorated spinal discs were simply removed, and the two adjoining vertebrae were fused together to form one, stronger unit. While spinal fusion can and does help many spinal conditions, it also imposes limits on your range of motion in that area, due to the lack of flexibility and cushioning from losing a disc.
Dr. Sina Rajamand and his team at Battle Born Brain and Spine have performed many cervical/lumbar disc replacement surgeries for patients in Reno and Carson City. This disc replacement procedure can be performed with minimally-invasive techniques to make your surgery even safer. Smaller incisions require less time to heal and reduce risks. You heal faster with fewer possible complications and can get back to your normal life as quickly as possible.
