Disc Replacement Procedures

At the Spine Physicians Institute we have successfully treated many patients throughout our office locations conveniently located to the Dallas, Irving, Red Oak, Plano, Southlake, Grapevine, Colleyville and Duncanville areas with disc replacement procedures aimed at alleviating the painful symptoms our patients face. While the first step to any treatment plan is to ensure that all non-invasive options have been explored many patients find that the best possible option is surgery. In disc replacement surgery an artificial disc is implanted to imitate the functions of a normal disc in an otherwise healthy patient. There are cases where disc replacement is not a viable option for our patients, conditions such as morbid obesity, pregnancy, spondylolisthesis and others that our expert spine surgeons can assess to determine if you are a candidate for disc replacement surgery.
