Lumbar Disc Replacement Surgery - Preparing for surgery

Operative Procedure

  • Prior to your operation you will be fasted for minimum of 8 hours. The anesthesiologist will administer the anesthesia. Once under anaesthesia you will be positioned for surgery. Using a surgical microscope, the affected disc is removed
  • The surgeon will also shave off any osteophytes (bone spurs)
  • A fluoroscope (using x-rays) is used to guide insertion of the artificial disc device into the prepared disc space. The surgeon is able to see where the implant goes as it is inserted. This makes the procedure much safer and much more accurate
