When will I be able to leave the hospital after the artificial disc replacement surgery?

We will be able to tell you for sure when you can leave the hospital after your surgery.

Most patients are eager to find out how soon they can return home after an artificial disc replacement. Before the intervention, we can only approximate the duration of your hospital stay. Following the intervention, we will be able to tell you how soon you will be discharged after you are examined, and we know what postoperative symptoms you have.

Generally, patients spend one or two days in the hospital after artificial disk replacement.
