Arkansas Surgical Hospital launches new MIS disc replacement procedure

Written by Shayna Korol | September 21, 2018 | Print  |

Arkansas Surgical Hospital in North Little Rock is now offering Centinel Spine’s minimally invasive prodisc C anterior cervical total disc replacement surgery for neck and arm pain.

The surgery features a ball-and-socket implant designed to maintain range of motion in the spine while removing the diseased disc.

"This procedure is similar to the way we’ve been replacing hips and knee joints over the years," said ASH neurosurgeon Phillip M. Porcelli, DO. "Applying this same technique to the spine allows us to address the patient’s back pain without impeding their mobility or range of motion. We’re able to replace a degenerated or diseased disc with an artificial implant that improves the patient’s natural spinal motion.”
