Unlike fusion surgery, artificial disc replacement is a life-changing procedure that preserves mobility. And we brought this technology to the United States, performed the first ADR procedure here in 2000 and have successfully implanted more than 1,400 artificial discs in patients over the past decade. As a world-class leader of spine care with deep experience and expertise in artificial disc replacement, you can trust that all information posted here is current, trustworthy and for your educational benefit.
