When to Consider a Cervical Disc Replacement
You are an adult.
You may have a loss of feeling, loss of movement, pain, weakness, or tingling down the arm and possibly into the hands.
Your pain is not reduced even after 6 or more weeks of non-surgical care, such as physical therapy and medicine or if there are signs that the symptoms are getting worse.
You experience arm pain and/or neurological symptoms such as weakness or numbness with or without neck pain.
Your symptoms are caused by a damaged disc that may be irritating the spinal cord or nerve roots.
You want to experience pain relief and return to the activities you love.
Mobi-C Cervical Disc Replacement is Superior to Fusion for Two-Level Surgery
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. Here are a few results from the study:
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.
Potential Mobi-C Post-Operative Risks
- Pain in the neck, arm, back, shoulder, or head.
- The feeling of pins and needles in the arms.
- Difficulty swallowing.
Ask your doctor for more information about additional risks related to surgery with the Mobi-C.
How Mobi-C Works
Your doctor will remove the unhealthy disc(s).
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.
Unlike a fusion, the Mobi-C may allow the vertebrae above and below to maintain their natural movement.
Talk to a doctor about surgery using Mobi-C.
