Simplify Cervical Artificial Disc Is Now FDA Approved for 1-Level Use
Anatomic • Physiologic • Radiologic
Simplify Cervical Artificial Disc is designed to allow the full diagnostic imaging capability of MRI.
Lateral MRI at 24-months post-op.
Axial MRI at 24-months post-op.
Simplify Disc is designed to fit patient anatomy, protect facets, and prevent overstuffing. With significant decrease in pain relief and significant increase in functional improvement, Simplify Disc is the only TDR (total disc replacement) to be able to demonstrate that a majority of patients with its disc had no facet degeneration through 24 months.
Simplify Disc’s variable center of rotation is designed to replicate the natural motion of healthy, intact discs. The 3-piece semi-constrained design allows for 12° flexion/extension, lateral bending, and axial rotation.
Simplify Disc’s PEEK and ceramic materials allow for detailed anatomic visualization on MR Imaging. In addition to being surgeons’ preferred imaging modality for the spine, it spares patients harmful radiation. As there is minimal artifact, Simplify Disc is the only CTDR (cervical total disc replacement) to enable diagnostic capabilities of MRI.
