Artificial Disks

Injured After an Artificial Cervical Disk or Lumbar Disk Failed?

Artificial disk replacement (spine arthroplasty) is a relatively new procedure in most U.S. hospitals and clinics. It has been difficult for scientists and doctors to create a suitable replacement for intervertebral disks. Artificial disks have to be long-lasting, reliable and able to be safely implanted. They must also allow for full range of motion and movement required in the neck and spine. While advancements have been made with these artificial disks and in neck and spinal disk replacement surgery, neither the devices nor procedures are fool-proof.

When an artificial disk breaks down or otherwise fails, it can result in increased pain, a spinal compression fracture and injury to the nerves. Often it requires additional operations to modify or replace the implanted disk.

If you or a loved one has received an artificial disk and experiences complications and increased pain, the device may be defective. We can help.
