This production–Artificial Discs in the Lumbar Spine Video–discusses the lumbar spine.┬áThe lumbar artificial disc┬áhas been designed to allow some motion of the defective segment by replacing the damaged disc with this implant. This theoretically reduces some stress on the segment above to prevent further degeneration of this superior segment. The artificial disc however has some significant deficiencies that need to be discussed.
