The goal of a clinical trial is to test the safety and efficacy of new drugs and medical devices before they are released to the general public.
To help patients researching or enrolling in a clinical trial, we have compiled a combination of information resources and clinical research studies actively recruiting patients for conditions related to back pain, neck pain and leg pain.
This Artificial Cervical Disc Clinical Study is for Patients Diagnosed with Degenerative Cervical (Neck) Radiculopathy at One Vertebral Level, from C3 to C7
Neck or arm pain? Do you suffer from arm numbness, tingling and/or weakness? Are you considering an artificial cervical disc? You may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Spinal Kinetics M6-C artificial cervical disc* compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). This study is for patients diagnosed with symptomatic degenerative cervical radiculopathy, with or without spinal cord compression, at one vertebral level. The sponsor of this new clinical study is Spinal Kinetics, Inc.
* Note: the M6-C is limited by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to investigational use at selected clinical trial sites only.
Right now spine specialists around the United States are accepting patient's diagnosed with or who may have spinal stenosis for the .
Do you suffer with pain, tingling, or numbness in your leg(s) when walking or standing? Have medications and injections failed to provide relief? Are you considering a lumbar decompression surgery? You may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study designed to produce scientific information to demonstrate the treatment effect of the Totalis procedure, a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional spine surgery that does not require general anesthesia and allows most patients to return home the same day. The Study is intended to provide clinical data required by Medicare to support insurance coverage.
* Note: the Totalis System is FDA Approved but not yet covered by Medicare or private insurance.
