Different Types of Disc Replacement Surgery for Neck

We humans have a very robust and well-defined support structure, wherein our head is supported by neck, which enables it to move while also providing it a link to connect the trunk. In human body, seven cervical vertebrae are present specifically for supporting the neck. However, because our neck gets hardly any protection as compared to the rest of our spine, it becomes more vulnerable to injuries and other disorders that might lead to pain, restricted motion, etc.

Even though there are several kinds of spondylolisthesis treatment surgery, we do not have profound knowledge about them. Here is a list of the most common type of disc replacement surgery for neck that surgeons suggest in case of neck injury, accident, chronic pain or even disc alignment:

  • Foraminoplasty Surgery
  • Laminectormy Surgery
  • Anterior Cervical Disectomy Surgery
  • Total Disc Replacement
  • Corpectomy Surgery

Even though there are surgical treatments available for treating neck disorders, sometimes patients look forward to getting no surgical treatments to avoid post-surgical period. Non-surgical methods are also non-invasive in nature, however, they are successful in handful of cases only and if you have failed to get any relief from non-surgical treatments, then surgery remains your last option to seek relief from your pain and discomfort.
