Caption: Lumbar spine disc implant. X-ray showing a side view of the lumbosacral spine of a 62 year old female patient after spinal surgery for a herniated intervertebral disc. The damaged disc (at L4-L5) has been surgically removed and replaced by a mechanical prosthesis (white). Damaged intervertebral discs can impinge on nerves and the spinal cord, and in serious cases surgery is performed.
