One Level Cervical Disc Replacement: K.S.
K.S. is a 47 year old man who sustained a cervical spine injury resulting in a disc herniation at the C5-6 level. He was having neck pain that radiated to his right shoulder and arm. He also had numbness and tingling in his thumb and index finger that was very bothersome. After failing all non-surgical treatments he elected to proceed with an artificial disc replacement.
