Dr. Mukund Gundanna - Disc Replacement

In today’s Brazos Valley Physician’s Organization Journal of Medicine Report, Dr. Mukund Gundanna talks about Artificial Disc Replacement.

When discs wear out, now we can do disc replacements where we remove them and replace them with moving parts. Replacement technology is great for young people who have tremendous amounts of back or neck pain and also may have associated nerve irritation causing arm or leg pain.

Typically, everybody experiences some amount of back pain or neck pain throughout their lives and often this gets better without having surgery. If the pain continues, if it alters a person’s ability to do normal activities or limits their ability to enjoy their life, then disc replacement technology to restore them back to function and give them back their ability to do what they want without pain.

The Brazos Valley Physician’s Organization is a group of independent physicians who provide local, comprehensive services to the greater Brazos Valley while preserving the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship. Our vision is that the patient always comes first.
