Stenum Hospital provides the most advanced Disc Replacement solutions and implants available worldwide.

Our surgeons are among an elite group of the most experienced Disc Replacement surgeons in the world, and have dedicated their careers to the sub-specialty of Disc Replacement.

Here you can learn about safer disc replacement implants, multi-level disc replacement, lumbar and cervical disc replacement, and the truth about the risks involved with some early implant products still in use today.

Disc Replacement, developed in Europe over 15 years ago, is now in use all over the world, and has all but eliminated the tragedy of spinal fusion (except in the US, where this process has been slowed by regulation).

At Stenum Hospital disc replacement has been taken to the next level, with improved implants (not yet available in the US) high risk revision surgeries have all but been eliminated, and disc replacement is now used to create multi-level solutions for both the lumbar and cervical spine. Even with fusion and adjacent to existing fusion!
At Stenum Hospital our surgeons can go beyond simple disc replacement or fusion to create a complete multi-level spine solution which can include combinations of the best disc replacment technology, stabilization, fusion, and other treatments, if needed.


Tragically, patients with severe loss of disc space, previous surgeries, more than one level needed, and many other factors may be excluded from disc replacement surgery in error. Additionally, it is quite likely that single level procedures are often performed when multi-level indications exist, resulting in poor results and risky second surgeries. Don’t risk a single level procedure if you have multi-level indications. Read your reports! Many multi-level Disc Replacements are performed with great success, and L3-4 or Cervical disc replacements are quite common.


New implants, available at Stenum, offer improved design (reducing implant migration), have increased stability, are easier to implant, and have no plastic cores or invasive screws.
You need a surgeon with the experience and freedom to consider all the affected levels, all the treatment options, and create a total multi-level solution, as needed.
At Stenum Hospital our surgical team can create your spine solution from an extensive list of globally available device options. At Stenum, L3-4, cervical, and multiple level disc replacement is common. Also, disc replacement at levels adjacent to previously fused levels, even multi device disc replacement plus fusion procedures, for more advanced multi-level cases, are done with great success.
Disc replacement surgery requires a high level of experience, to get the correct diagnosis and surgery plan, avoid risks to vital organs, and carefully balance proper implant placement with the resulting impact of the procedure on the spine. You should only allow the most experienced spine specialists, with hundreds of abdominal approaches done, perform this complex procedure for you.


These leading surgeons are now treating international patients at Stenum Hospital. Our spine specialists have placed thousands of implants and over 500 Americans have come to Stenum for a superior spine solution.
Choose your surgeons carefully!

Insurance Accepted:

Stenum Hospital is a certified BlueCross BlueShield World Access Provider. Some BCBS patients will have access to the BlueCard Worldwide process for assistance in processing their claim.

The staff at Stenum Hospital will work with you to prepare your insurance documents regardless of your carrier. However, as with any medical procedure, it is the patients ultimate responsibility to pay the provider. In most cases we still require patients to pre-pay for surgeries due to the unreliable payment process which seems to plague many insurance systems
