What Causes Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis and Artificial Disc Replacement
The surgeons at ONZ Spine are experienced and meticulous while using fluoroscopic and microscopic imaging technology for accurate removal of osteophytes during Artificial Disc Replacement surgery. During surgery, our surgeons check the foramen and spinal canal to ensure that they are free of all osteophytes and residual fragments and debris. We also try to use the largest artificial disc footprint (circumference of the endplates of the artificial disc) available which will help prevent osteophytes from forming around the implant in the future.
