CERVICAL ARTIFICIAL DISC REPLACEMENT
DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN NECK MOTION
IS CERVICAL DISC REPLACEMENT RIGHT FOR YOU? Consider cervical disc replacement if you want to experience pain relief and return to the activities you love. Adults who have the following symptoms may want to talk to their doctor to see if they are a candidate for cervical disc replacement:
- Pain caused by a damaged disc that may be irritating the spinal cord or nerve roots;
- Pain that’s not reduced even after 6 or more weeks of non-surgical care, such as physical therapy and medicine;
- Arm pain and/or neurological symptoms, such as weakness or numbness with or without neck pain; and,
- Pain, weakness, tingling, loss of feeling or movement down the arms and possibly into the hands.
If you have these symptoms, talk to your doctor as cervical disc replacement may help end or lessen your neck and/or arm pain and discomfort, keep neck movement, match disc height to the levels above and below, and help you return to your normal life of work, family, and fun.

Thinking about cervical disc replacement?
MOBI-C CERVICAL DISC REPLACEMENT works like this: First, your doctor will remove the unhealthy disc(s). Then, the Mobi-C is implanted in the disc space between 2 vertebrae. With vertebrae and muscle movement, the Mobi-C is able to twist and slide front-to-back and side-to-side. And unlike a fusion, the Mobi-C may allow the vertebrae above and below to maintain their natural movement.
Like any procedure, there are potential post-operative risks. You may experience pain in your neck, arm, back, shoulder or head; the feeling of pins and needles in your arms; difficulty swallowing, or a headache. Ask your doctor for more information about additional risks related to surgery with Mobi-C. [Get more study details and risk information]
Mobi-C Cervical Disc Replacement is
SUPERIOR TO FUSION
FOR TWO-LEVEL SURGERY
Talk to a doctor about using Mobi-C.
Mobi-C went through major testing and review with the Food and Drug Administration, which approved Mobi-C for both one-level and two-level cervical disc replacement surgery in the United States. The study found nearly three-quarters of Mobi-C patients were able to bend their head forward-to-backward to the same degree or better after 5 years when compared to the range of motion at the operated level(s) before the procedure. When compared to spinal fusion patients, there are fewer Mobi-C patients who require an additional surgery at the treated level(s) of the spine. [Read more study results]
