Rebecca called today asking about cervical disc replacement and is considering the Mobi-C Cervical Disc Replacement.
I directed her to this page which outlines the results.
LDR MEDICAL MOBI-C CERVICAL DISC PROSTHESIS
“Dislodged or dislocated”
After being diagnosed with degenerated discs many people are told they need disc replacement and offered Mobi C, but what about Mobi-C Complications – Dislodged or dislocated?
Facing this question many will consider a better Disc Replacement Implant.
Why not Spinal Kinetics M6 Disc Replacement?
Artificial Disc Replacement implants now in use offer greatly improved safety and something called “Quality of Motion” that makes them truly deserve the title “Artificial Disc Replacement”.
What is Quality of Motion
Modern Artificial Disc Replacement technology has come a long way now and thousands of fusion surgeries are being avoided. These improved artificial disc replacement products can now provide a natural “Quality of Motion” unlike any of the early artificial disc replacement implants.
Unlike early artificial disc replacement products, the advanced artificial disc replacements available today have improved end plate attachment design to reduce implant migration and the risk of a revision surgery. These artificial disc replacement products also now have “motion control” to reduce joint hyper-activity which leads to the long term complications and pain caused by those early ball-in-socket type artificial disc replacement products. This joint hyper-activity has been found to stress the facet joints, ligaments, and muscles causing complications and pain. The new generation artificial disc replacement implants also feature the added safety of shock absorption. This shock absorption will help to prevent injury to adjacent discs and vertebra.
We are now using the breakthrough Spinal Kinetics M6 artificial disc replacement for the Lumbar and Cervical spine. The Spinal Kinetics M6 is the first artificial disc replacement product to truly deserve the title “Artificial Disc Replacement”. This implant achieves the ultimate goal of replicating the healthy human disc. By providing shock absorption and graded variable motion resistance, the M6 disc replacement works in concert with the remaining human discs, to provide the best possible outcome. This “Quality of Motion” is a major benefit not available in any other disc replacement implant we have seen!
We can now do multi-level artificial disc replacement, lumbar and cervical artificial disc replacement, even fusion with disc replacement hybrid procedures. These solutions come without many of the complications involved with fusion surgery and early artificial disc replacement products, many still in use today.
Are you confused about what treatment is the best option for you?
Exploring your international options will open your eyes to options you likely would not be offered locally.
Maybe you have been told you are not a candidate for Disc Replacement. You could be considering a temporary solution like discetomy, laminectomy or laser surgery. Some are told that fusion is their only option in error.
Evaluations can be done easily by mailing your images to us.
In order to determine what treatment is right for you, you need a comprehensive evaluation, done by our team of surgeons, who are experienced with the full range of globally available options.
Our surgeons will provide you a complete written evaluation (diagnosis and surgery plan) free of charge.
