The artificial cervical disc replacement is used to reduce pain and improve mobility in young patients with cervical disc pathology causing upper extremity numbness, tingling and pain. The discs are located between the bones/vertebrae of the cervical spine. The discs act as cushions or shock absorbers during activities allowing flexibility and motion of the spinal column. Unfortunately, discs can weaken due to degenerative changes or they may herniate. The artificial disc replacement uses an anterior technique to replace the damaged disc while continuing to preserve the motion of the cervical spine.
Dr. Toumbis is one of the very few providers in this area that performs this procedure.
