An artificial cervical disc replacement uses a metal and plastic disc to mimic the organic disc. However, patients suffering from medical conditions such as osteoporosis or osteoarthritis may not be candidates for an artificial disc.
A cervical fusion is a more intense replacement due to the fact that it joins two or more of the vertebrae in the neck together permanently with the use of bone grafts.
