Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement Improves Mobility

On Wednesday, February 18 at 7:00pm EST PinnacleHealth will present an OR-Live webcast of an Anterior Cervical Discectomy. Dr. William Beutler, a neurosurgeon at PinnacleHealth will perform the procedure while Dr. Walter Peppelman will moderate. "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.
