Patients have varied anatomy and other total discs are limited to a single design that may require endplate remodeling for optimal implant fit.
Centinel Spine’s revolutionary prodisc® cervical total disc replacement platform advances patient care by providing a portfolio of products that allows surgeons to choose the implant design that’s best for the patient.
prodisc C has been implanted in the U.S. since 2007 and remains the most studied total disc in the world. 2 The product utilizes flat endplates with larger central keels.
At the heart of each prodisc device is prodisc CORE Technology, the articulating design feature that incorporates a fixed core and optimized core radius that together provide stability and controlled predictable motion. 3,4
This articulating design feature driving the kinematics of each prodisc device remains central to the reproducible positive clinical outcomes of the prodisc technology platform over the past 30 years.
These devices are indicated and FDA-approved for 1 level.
