Artificial Disc Replacement

Advanced technology for better recovery

Spine surgery has a reputation for being the “last stop” for people with back and neck pain caused by spine disorders or trauma. That may have been true once upon a time, but not anymore.


This is especially true when it comes to artificial disc replacement. In fact, patients considering artificial disc replacement (ADR) surgery with Dr. Radcliff will be happy to know that he performs ADR using minimally invasive techniques that preserve natural tissue planes while also preserving motion.


Dr. Radcliff and his staff at the Spinal DISC Center are recognized experts in the field of artificial disc replacement, so you can rest assured that you are in the best of hands.

What is ADR?

Artificial disc replacement surgery is typically recommended for patients who have disc herniation, spine injury, or degenerative disc disease causing chronic pain that hasn’t been relieved through non-surgical treatments. It is typically performed to replace a diseased or damaged intervertebral disc of the spine with an artificial joint.


Dr. Radcliff performs ADR as an alternative to fusion surgery because it provides patients numerous benefits, including preserved motion of the spine.


During this procedure, Dr. Radcliff makes a small incision through which he removes the injured disc and any associated bone spurs. He then replaces it with an artificial disc that is designed to replicate the natural motion of the spine in order to preserve range of motion in that area.

Relieving pain, preserving motion

ADR surgery has numerous benefits for the patient, including:

  • Maintains normal motion in the spine
  • Eliminates the complications and issues sometimes associated with fusion
  • Reduces the chance of degenerative disc disease in adjacent joints


The procedure is designed to relieve the pressure on your spinal cord or nerves that are causing pain, numbness, and weakness.


For many patients, artificial disc replacement is an excellent alternative to spinal fusion surgery because the artificial disc allows the spine to have much greater mobility. After surgery, patients not only find their pain is relieved, but they can eventually return to many of the activities they once enjoyed since artificial disc replacement preserves the spine’s ability to bend, flex, and rotate.
