Artificial Disc Replacement

Your journey back to health with motion sparing technology.


Mobility Restoration

Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery is backed by clinical data supporting its effectiveness with patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, disc herniations, and pinched nerves.

Design & Kinematics


The core design allows for natural anatomical movements including lateral bending with flexion and extension while resisting sheer force.


The anatomical shape of the implant is designed to match that of a natural human vertebral body.


A plasma sprayed titanium coating is applied to the artificial disc endplates to help induce bone growth to help secure the implant in place.

Not all patients are candidates for artificial disc replacement. In some instances, fusion may be the best/safest option.
