Cervical disc replacement is a surgical method of replacing the diseased or damaged intervertebral discs in the neck region with an artificial disc to restore motion to the spine. It can be considered as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.
Artificial disc replacement is indicated in patients with degenerative disc disease, a condition referred to as a gradual degeneration of the disc between the vertebrae caused by a natural process of aging.
