Our neurosurgeons offer artificial disc replacement surgery, also known as disc arthroplasty. This surgery can be used in the back (lumbar) or neck (cervical) region of your spine to relieve pain without sacrificing your mobility. Patients report excellent outcomes, such as less pain and fewer physical limitations.
Brain and spine surgery can be intimidating. A second opinion offers reassurance. We can generally arrange an appointment with a neurosurgeon in 1-3 business days. Check with your insurance plan to see if a second opinion appointment is covered and if Gundersen is considered an in-network or out-of-network provider.
