Disc Replacement
Spinal Disc Replacement: supporting pain-free mobility through Spinal Prosthesis
Key Facts Spinal Disc Replacement (Artificial Spinal Disc)

• Indications: Spinal Disc Degeneration with chronic cervical pain.
• Strategy: Spinal Disc Replacement (ADR stands for anterior disc replacement) replaces the intervertebral Disc with a disc prosthesis maintaining natural mobility of the spin.
• Inpatient treatment: 2 days for cervical disc replacement.
• Outpatient Rehabilitation: 5 days for cervical artificial disc.
• Earliest flight home: 7 days after surgery for cervical disc replacement.
• Recommended flight home: 10 days after surgery for cervical disc replacement.
• Recommended time off work: 3 weeks for cervical disc replacement.
• Suture removal: Cervical disc surgery - no sutures.
• Time before driving a car: Cervical disc replacement - 1 week.

Brain Surgery
Dr. Salmon is allowed to perform cerebral surgery to treat the following conditions:
TUMORS
Meningiomas, Hypophyseal tumors, Gliomas, Intraventricular tumors, Bone tumors, Biopsy, Stereotactic surgery, Navigation assisted neurosurgery, Endoscopy of the brain.
TRAUMA
Chronic subdural hematoma drainage under local anesthesia.
Spinal Cervical & Lumbar
Cervical and lumbar spinal fusion surgeries are procedures that provide relief to those suffering from cervical stenosis and many other forms of spinal deformities.
Spinal Tumors
SPINAL TUMORS: SURGERY AND RECOVERY
Some spinal tumors, benign or malignant, require surgical intervention before or after non-operative treatments. When pain is unresponsive to non-operative treatment, neurologic deficit progresses, a specimen is needed, neural elements (e.g. nerves) are compressed, vertebral destruction exists, or when spinal stabilization is necessary – surgery is considered.
Neuro Carotid Disorders
There are 4 main vessels providing blood to the brain and all intracranial structures. The carotid arteries are in the front; and in the back, inside cervical spine are the vertebral arteries, as you can see in the picture.
