Exploring the Advantages of Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery with Dr. Charla Fischer

Dr. Charla Fischer, MD, FACS, Medical Director and Founder of Fischer Spine Surgery, specializes in providing innovative treatment for patients with back, spine, and neck conditions. Under her expert care, artificial disc replacement surgery emerges as a leading-edge solution to address chronic back pain and restore spinal function.

Benefits of Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery

  • Pain Relief: Artificial disc replacement surgery offers effective relief from chronic back pain caused by degenerative disc disease and other spinal conditions.
  • Preservation of Range of Motion: By replacing damaged discs with artificial ones, this procedure aims to maintain the spine’s flexibility and stability.
  • Reduced Risk of Complications: Compared to traditional spinal fusion procedures, artificial disc replacement surgery carries a lower risk of long-term complications such as spinal instability and nerve damage.
  • Shorter Recovery Time: Patients typically experience a shorter recovery period following artificial disc replacement surgery, allowing them to return to their daily activities sooner.
  • Durable Results: The artificial discs used in the procedure are designed to last for many years, reducing the likelihood of future surgeries.
  • Improved Spinal Stability: Artificial discs mimic the natural movement of the spine, providing stability and support in the disc space, thereby reducing the risk of spinal instability.
  • Prevention of Adjacent Segment Disease: By distributing stress more evenly across the spine, artificial disc replacement surgery can help reduce the risk of adjacent segment disease.
  • Enhanced Posture and Alignment: Proper alignment of the spine is promoted, reducing strain on surrounding muscles and tissues and improving overall posture.
  • Expanded Treatment Options: Artificial disc replacement surgery offers a viable alternative for individuals who are not candidates for other forms of spinal surgery due to spinal deformities or underlying conditions.

It’s important to note that the benefits of artificial disc replacement surgery may vary for each individual, and Dr. Fischer will conduct a comprehensive examination to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
