Disc Replacement Dallas TX
Motion-Preserving Disc Replacement for Patients in Dallas, TX
Texas Back Institute’s Center for Disc Replacement provides patients in Dallas, Texas, and all nearby areas with an innovative alternative to traditional spine fusion surgery. While a fusion would permanently join the vertebrae that sit above and below a damaged intervertebral disc, restricting movement, our surgeons can replace the damaged disc with a prosthesis that allows the patient to retain a normal range of motion. Compared to a fusion, disc replacement also typically enables patients to return more quickly to their regular lives and reduces the risk of needing additional surgery.
Known for performing groundbreaking surgical procedures, Texas Back Institute completed the first artificial disc replacement in the U.S. in 2000. Since then, we’ve performed thousands of disc replacements, and have installed more than a dozen types of artificial discs, establishing ourselves as a leader in artificial disc surgery.
Some of the conditions we can treat with disc replacements include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Chronic discogenic pain
To discuss whether you would benefit from artificial disc surgery, visit Texas Back Institute in the Dallas, TX, area for an evaluation of your medical history, a physical examination, and any necessary diagnostic tests. Because we always reserve surgery as a last resort, we’ll seek to achieve pain relief first through conservative treatments such as physical therapy and pain management. If severe pain persists and it is determined that you would benefit from surgery, we can help you determine whether artificial disc replacement is right for you.
