I was living with severe sciatic pain for years. I thought it was untreatable. Dr. Morreale was so kind, caring knowledgeable and cheerful about answering my hundreds of questions. The relief I have now is extraordinary. I'm ready to begin the rest of my life pain free now!
Artificial Disc Replacement
When compared to traditional spine surgery, artificial disc replacement in the neck or back may provide many benefits to alleviate your symptoms.
Understanding the source of the pain and what options are available to you are important. Dr. Morreale will review your medical history, imaging and your ailments to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for artificial disc replacement.
Diagnosis & Surgery
Dr. Morreale may recommend an artificial disc replacement over a traditional fusion if he is interested in preserving your ability to return to function following the procedure. Your procedure typically will only take a couple hours to complete.
Artificial disc replacement surgery can offer a faster recovery so you can return to activities sooner than other forms of spine surgery. With returned function of your spine to bend, twist and flex normally, you can begin your new life pain free!
