Total Disc Replacement (TDR) - Dr. Oliver Quiron Teknon Hospital
Spine Surgery is a daunting prospect and demands serious commitment butifafter taking medication and following recommended exercisesyour back problems continue to worsen and restrict your daily activities, then maybe it’s time to consider the possibility of surgery.
Total Disc Replacement (TDR) unlike Fusion, is a motion preserving surgery. The procedure involves the surgeon using minimally invasive techniques to remove the damaged disc, replacing it with an artificial disc which restores space between the vertebrae and maintains motion. The minimally invasive procedure ensures that recovery is quick and far less painful.
To determine your candidacy for TDR a full consultation with a highly experienced spine specialist is necessary.
To have your case assessed by Dr Oliver, a senior Neurosurgeon at the Quiron Teknon Hospital, you will need to provide the doctor with copies of your most recent images MRI/CT/X-rays (- 6 months old) and details of your pain and treatment. A patient information sheet with a body scheme is provided to ensure these details are recorded accurately.
Once Dr Oliver has evaluated your case he will provide you with his assessment and confirm your candidacy for Lumbar/Cervical TDR surgery. Patients identified as good candidates for Lumbar/Cervical TDR, will receive a quote for treatment using the Spinal Kinetics M6 device. TDR surgery + M6 performed by Dr Oliver significantly reduces pain, preserves motion and cuts recovery time. The return to daily activities and work is much faster after TDR surgery than after Fusion surgery.
