The back pain you are experiencing is most likely caused by a condition called "degenerative disc disease". The condition may take many forms and your doctor may use a different name, like disc herniation, ruptured disc, annular tear, collapsed disc, or slipped disc, regardless of the name, the disc does not work properly and causes pain when you move.
ADR intervention offers the possibility of complete restoration of disc height and removal of the disc which may be in contact with exit nerves or the spinal cord. All this is accomplished while maintaining stability and mobility of the joint.
Quality of Motion
Here you will learn about improved disc replacement implants which now provide a "Quality of Motion" unlike any of the early implant designs. We can now do multi-level disc replacement, lumbar and cervical disc replacement, all without many of the risks involved with early implant products still in use today.
The advanced implants, available offer improved design, reducing implant migration and the risk of revision surgery, have increased motion control to reduce post-op pain caused by stress on facet joints, ligaments, and muscles , and have shock absorption to prevent injury to adjacent structures.
We are now offering the breakthrough Spinal Kinetics M6 implant for the Cervical and Lumbar spine. The first disc replacement implant to truly deserve the title "Artificial Disc". This implant achieves the ultimate goal of replicating the healthy human disc. By providing shock absorption and graded variable motion resistance, the M6 works in concert with the remaining human discs, to provide the best possible outcome. This "Quality of Motion" is a major benefit not available in any other implant we have seen!

Getting the best implant is critical!
Implantation is from the front, avoiding damage to muscles and ligaments, and recovery is relatively quick when compared to other options like spinal fusion.
It is vital that all affected levels be identified and treated during the first surgery, as additional front access procedures present significant additional risks.
