Video: Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement Improves Mobility

Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement Improves MobilityOn Wednesday, February 18 at 7:00pm EST PinnacleHealth presented an OR-Live webcast of an Anterior Cervical Discectomy. Dr. William Beutler, a neurosurgeon at PinnacleHealth performed the procedure while Dr. Walter Peppelman moderated. “With this new technology, we’re able to put in an artificial disc that allows natural motion. In other words, I try and replicate the disc that I just took out. Unlike the older fusion technique, this usually inhibits degeneration of adjacent discs.” During the program, viewers will have the opportunity to participate in a live question and answer forum with Drs. Beutler and Peppelman.
