Cervical disk prolapse is a common ailment in young people and has generally been treated by anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion. This has caused restricted movement of the neck at the level of fusion along with adjacent segment changes over a period of time. With the advent of artificial disk, motion preserving techniques are being used for young people with active lifestyles with excellent outcomes. Artificial disk replacement at single level has been used by many surgeons after cervical diskectomy, however, a three level cervical disk replacement or cervical disk arthroplasty surgery has rarely been performed. We report a 46-year-old patient with symptomatic three level cervical disk prolapse treated with anterior cervical diskectomy followed by artificial disk replacement at all three levels as a motion preserving surgery.
