Advanced technologies abound in the medical industry, and new innovations in spine care can offer significant improvement for those suffering from chronic back conditions and pain. At Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno, Nevada, Dr. Sina Rajamand and his talented team offer Artificial Disc Replacement for those suffering from numerous conditions stemming from damaged or deteriorated discs.
What Conditions Could Warrant Artificial Disc Replacement?
The discs of your spine are composed of annular layers of connective tissue with a soft core of spongy, shock-absorbing material. These discs are between each of your 33 vertebrae. The complete structure allows your spine an amazing amount of flexibility while protecting your spinal cord with a strong framework.
Despite the resilience of this structure, your spinal discs can be damaged in a variety of ways, including:
- Degenerative conditions (like osteoarthritis)
- Bone spurs
- Herniated disc
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal trauma
In the past, victims of these or other conditions suffered pain and limited mobility with few options for a complete repair. Now, new technology in spinal disc replacement offers patients a return to full range of movement and no nagging pain.
What is Involved in Disc Replacement Surgery?
Instead of the previous solutions of removing damaged discs and fusing the vertebrae together, now Dr. Rajamand can replace worn or damaged vertebral discs with strong and long-lasting artificial components. This allows for more freedom of movement and flexibility over older “lose and fuse” methods of repair.
Moreover, new minimally invasive disc replacement surgery techniques mean your procedure is faster and safer, and your recovery is much shorter than ever before. Fewer risks mean fewer possible complications and a return to a pain-free life much faster.
Artificial disc replacement in the cervical or lumbar spine can be performed at our state-of-the-art surgery center at Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno.
