The prostheses for the spine offer stabilization and fixation in the organ that we want to replace.
A prosthesis is an artificial object, which replaces a deficient or absent human body member, totally or partially. The absence of the organ can be caused by accidents, malformations or diseases.
People throughout their lives, at some time, may suffer from back pain, which can be at the muscular level or in the spine. A prosthesis is a viable option to help stabilize the spine, relieving pain, which can be located both in the cervical spine and in the lumbar spine.

Recommendations on the use of prostheses for the spine

There are patients with symptomatic degenerative diseases of the spine, which, without surgery, respond favourably to therapeutic methods. There is another group, which due to chronic nature, pain interferes with their ability to work and participate in their daily activities.
The use of the prosthesis is recommended only when the patient has failed traditional treatments.

To ensure the need to subject the patient to surgery, it is important to be sure that this is the possible solution to his condition. For this, the attending physician must perform a series of exams, which allow him to ensure the effectiveness of the surgery.
The patient must rely on a reliable high-tech test, such as performing a vertical magnetic resonance imaging, which will allow him to make the right decision.
This test has the ability to determine exactly at what level the lesion is to be treated, which may well be located in the cervical spine or in the lumbar spine.
After conducting this study, comes the choice of alternatives to perform the implant, this is directly linked to the pathology presented by the patient, and their ability to accept a prosthesis according to their diagnosis.
