The disc is the soft cushioning structure located between the individual bones of the spine, called “vertebra.” It is made of cartilage-like tissue and consists of an outer portion, called the annulus and an inner portion, called the nucleus. In most cases, the disc is flexible enough to allow the spine to bend.
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). Artificial disc replacement surgery in India involves replacing a painful disc with an artificial disc. Artificial disc surgery or a disc replacement surgery in India may be performed by either a neurosurgeon or a orthopaedic spine specialist and on the lower back (lumbar spine) or the neck (cervical spine).
In India we see lot of patients with different spine problems. Honestly speaking not all patients need spine surgery. The indications for disc replacement varies for each patient. During the aging process, discs can weaken and develop tears or cracks in the outer portion, resulting in degenerative disc disease which is very commonly seen by neurosurgeons and orthopaedic spine surgeons in India. Additionally, the inner portion may bulge out and press against the outer portion, resulting in pain.The purpose of artificial disc replacement is to replace the worn out disc while also preserving spine’s motion in the best possible way. Surgery for disc replacement in India is performed only when we have confidence of giving best results to patient post surgery. The success rate of disc replacement surgery in India can be ascertained by reduced back pain and no increased risk of problems developing at an adjacent level of the spine.
Disc Replacement Surgery in IndiaA lumbar disk replacement is a type of back surgery which involves replacing a worn or degenerated disk in the lower part of your spine with an artificial disc made of medical-grade metal or a combination of medical-grade metal and medical-grade plastic. Disc Replacement Surgery in India is generally seen as an alternative to the more common spinal fusion surgery that joins two vertebrae together. When compared disc replacement surgery is the best option in many situations however there are cases where spinal fusion surgery is the best line of treatment.
Spinal Fusion Surgery in India: A spinal fusion surgery is designed to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn should decrease pain generated from the joint. There are many approaches to lumbar spinal fusion surgery in India and all of them involve adding bone graft to an area of the spine to set up a biological response that causes the bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements and create a fusion, thereby stopping the motion at that segment.
