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 and Nervous System
Spine issues that require surgery are treated by neurosurgeons. These include: 

• Spinal problems, such as ruptured discs or arthritic spurs.
• Spinal cord tumors.
• Certain cases of epilepsy where seizure-causing tissue can be removed.
• Surgery when appropriate to treat Parkinson’s disease.

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
Neurological disorders are diseases of the brain, spine and the nerves that connect them. There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and stroke as well as less familiar ones such as frontotemporal dementia.
