In cases where arm pain is caused by a cervical disc bulge or herniation or from degenerative changes producing osteophytic spurs (aka “bone spurs”), the pain is called cervical radiculopathy.
Replacing a damaged disc with an artificial disc can reduce pain in the neck or lower back.
An artificial disc (also called a disc replacement, disc prosthesis or spine arthroplasty device) is a device that is implanted into the spine to imitate the functions of a normal disc (carry load and allow motion).
Bone grafts are bone that is transplanted from one area of the skeleton to another to aid in healing, strengthening or improving function.
One of the most critical components of building, healing and remodeling bone in humans is a process called osteoinduction.
Cervical disc replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing a damaged or degenerated cervical disc and replacing it with an artificial disc device.
Cervical laminoplasty is a surgical technique that removes pressure from the spinal cord in the neck.
If there is pain at one or more levels due to disc degeneration, the adjoining segments can be fused together to limit motion and stabilize the segment.
Laminoplasty is a surgical technique for the cervical spine, which gives more room to the spinal cord in the neck when it is compressed by disc material, bone spurs, or ligaments.
A laminectomy, or removal of the lamina, provides access to the inside of the spinal canal, and allows more room to remove a herniated disc or to open up a tight nerve hole (foramen).
