Texas Back Institute’s Center for Disc Replacement provides patients from all over the world with an innovative alternative to traditional spine fusion surgery. Our surgeons were the first to perform lumbar disc replacement in the US, and have published important research papers on cervical and lumbar arthroplasty. 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.

Our concierge services team can help coordinate your visit with your local physician and provide any logistical support you need.

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.
