Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement
The cervical spine is located in the neck region and consists of seven bones arranged one on top of the other. Cushioning tissue called vertebral discs located between the vertebrae act as shock absorbers, allowing easy movement of the neck. Wear and tear and advancing age can damage these discs, leading to pain and disability.
Mobi-C is an FDA-approved artificial cervical disc from Zimmer Biomet designed to maintain neck motion. It is employed in one- and two-level cervical disc replacement from C3 to C7 and is intended to restore/maintain disc height and segmental motion and alleviate pain and loss of motion in patients with degenerative disc disease and disc herniation.
