While some patients struggling with a cervical herniated disc can manage their symptoms using pain relievers, others find little relief as the disc fails to resolve on its own. Many patients become frustrated that their damaged cervical disc continues to be a source of recurring pain. If this describes you, you may be a candidate for herniated disc replacement surgery.
Here’s how a herniated disc replacement with Dr. Verdon works:

If left untreated, cervical herniated discs can eventually cause your cervical nerve root to be compressed or “pinched.” This can result in numbness and inflammation in your entire arm. In serious cases, it can impact your ability to walk and coordinate your movement.
Every patient is different, and your recovery time will depend on your unique situation, goals and needs. Dr. Verdon will discuss your recovery timeline with you as part of your consultation.
In a spinal fusion procedure, a surgeon will simply allow the two vertebrae on either side of the herniated disc to fuse together instead of replacing it with an artificial disc. While this has given effective relief to many patients, a cervical disc replacement generally affords your spine much greater mobility than a fusion following your surgery.
