Total Disk Replacements

Our spine experts recommend total disc replacement surgery when patients continue to feel pain even after physical therapy or other conservative treatments.

Many benefits include pain relief and unlike spinal fusions, total disk replacements preserve motion and function.

The Spine Center at UT Health San Antonio offers:

  • A comprehensive network of orthopaedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management physicians, physiatrists and physical therapists committed to providing conservative spine care for adults and children.
  • Experienced and fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons who perform more than 1000 spinal procedures annually.
  • Advanced surgical techniques proven to effectively treat neck and back pain.
  • Access to multidisciplinary spine specialists working together in an integrated academic setting. That means more treatment options for patients.
  • Individualized conservative treatment plans that can relieve pain without surgery.
  • Advanced imaging equipment, including the only EOS machine (low radiation, full spine and body imaging) in South Texas.
