ProDisc-C Cervical Disc Replacement

ProDisc-C Total Disc Replacement surgery is an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy (ACDF).

In both the ACDF and the ProDisc-C Total Disc Replacement procedures, the unhealthy disc is removed and the height at that level of your spine is restored to relieve pressure on the nerves and/or spinal cord. In an ACDF procedure, after the unhealthy disc is removed, the bones are fixed in position with implants and bone graft.

In some ACDF procedures, the bone graft may come from your hip in a separate incision. After surgery, the two bones are supposed to grow together, creating one solid piece of bone and eliminating motion at that level of your spine. In the ProDisc-C Total Disc Replacement procedure , the device is inserted into the disc space to restore the height at that level of your spine, while potentially allowing some motion. The procedure does not require a bone graft.
