Expertise in Disc Replacement Surgery
The success of disc replacement surgery depends on careful patient selection, meticulous disc space preparation, and ideal artificial disc selection and placement. Surgeon experience in these criteria becomes critical in the success of implantation. Implant selection usually depends on the surgeon’s experience and comfort with an implant; however, design features such as multiple implant sizes and heights, anatomic design of the endplates, as well as a mobile plastic core play a significant role in the selection process. In addition, state of the art (new generation) instrumentation better allow the surgeon to properly place the disc in ideal position.
