Patients have varied anatomy and other total disc replacement systems offer limited optionality. Centinel Spine’s revolutionary prodisc® total disc replacement platform advances patient care by providing total disc replacement products that allow surgeons to intraoperatively select the ideal prodisc® implant design that’s best for the patient.
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.
