ESP Disc Replacement

Top Spine Surgeon Dr. Ritter-Lang finds the elasto-metric properties of the ESP Disc Replacement to be a bit stiff.

Dr. Ritter-Lang “the visco-elastic properties of the Spinal Kinetics M6 are more consistent with restoring natural motion.”

 

The Spinal Kinetics M6 Cervical Disc Replacement offers a “Quality of Motion” that is not present in any other implant we have seen! says
Dr. Ritter-Lang.

Unlike early Disc Replacement designs, the Spinal Kinetics M6 cervical artificial disc is designed to replicate the structure and performance of a natural disc. Its innovative design incorporates an artificial nucleus to allow shock absorption and a woven fiber annulus for graded variable motion resistance in all directions.

Lumbar ESP Disc Replacement

The Lumbar ESP Disc Replacement – LP-ESP

The ESP disc replacement is made of 2 titanium alloy end-plates and an elasto-meric cushion. The spikes on the end-plates outer surfaces improve primary fixation. The combination of a hydroxyapatite (HA) coating on top of a T40 rough surface are considered as one of the best existing coating. The titanium alloy used for the end plates allows clear medical imaging and guarantees good bony fixation over time.

The LP-ESP cervical disc replacement has been developed to mimic the natural lumbar disc and allow the spine to behave as if the replaced disc would be natural in all situations.

  • Over 10 years of research and development
