Spinal Disc Replacement Can Restore Range Of Motion

Spine surgeon Dr. Kenneth Light says preliminary studies show that 3 level cervical (neck) spinal disc replacement can bring the same or superior results as 1 and 2 level disc replacement. This video shows a female patient who suffered a painful debilitating injury on the job and details the spinal disc replacement surgery performed by Dr. Light as an alternative to spinal fusion to relieve her pain and improve range of motion.

During disc replacement surgery the pain-generating disc is removed, the disc height is restored and an implant that allows the potential for motion is inserted into the disc space. Dr. Light says that back pain from injury or disease can be relieved with the benefit of rapid recovery time for most patients. “Most patients experience little downtime after undergoing the procedure and they can often return to most regular activities in a matter of days.” For information visit www.Dr.KennethLight.com
