The PRESTIGE® Cervical Disc at NYU Winthrop Hospital
Leading Edge Cervical Disc Replacement
The PRESTIGE® Cervical Disc System is a two piece metal device that is attached to adjacent vertebrae with bone screws to replace a diseased cervical disc. The device – an artificial disc – consists of two main metal pieces that move with respect to one another by a ball and trough mechanism.
The Prestige System is designed to allow motion at the operated spinal level. Replacing a disease disc with this device should result in both pain relief and improved function.
