It is a kind of joint replacement procedure to treat the problems caused by damaged cervical discs.
Relieve nerve compression- When a cervical disc gets damaged and prolapsed, it can compress the spinal nerve or spinal cord or both which results in chronic pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness of the arm. Replacing the degenerative disc with an artificial cervical disc relieves the pressure on any compressed nerves.
