The Natural Choice for Cervical and Lumbar Arthroplasty
Artificial Disc Solutions for Patients with Back, Neck and Arm Pain
Millions of people around the world suffer from spinal disc degeneration, resulting in chronic pain of the back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. In addition to pain, other symptoms include weakness, tingling or numbness. The M6-C™ and M6-L™ artificial discs offer an innovative non-fusion solution in treating degeneration of the cervical and lumbar discs. The M6 devices are the only artificial discs that mimic the structure and movement of a natural disc. To date, more than 75,000 patients worldwide have received the M6-C and M6-L discs replacements. With their unique design, the M6 discs are the natural choice over spinal fusion (ACDF).
Neck, Arm Pain & Cervical Disc Degeneration
For millions of people suffering around the world, having a pain in the neck is no laughing matter. Neck and arm pain can be the result of an accident, sitting hunched over a computer all day, or simply the wear and tear of normal life. Neck and arm pain is often the result of cervical disc degeneration, a condition in which a vertebral disc in the neck has deteriorated or been damaged due to the natural aging process or injury. Examples of cervical disc degeneration include ruptured discs, flattening or thinning discs, bulging discs, or bone spurs.
Back pain affects millions of people around the world of all ages. Since pain can affect both young and old, lower back pain is also one of the leading causes of inability to work around the world, creating financial hardships for the individuals themselves and their families. Degeneration and injury to the lumbar disc are common ailments that can lead to back pain. Lower back pain can be caused by overexertion, sports injuries, car accidents, or simply the normal aging process. Learn more about lower back pain and possible treatments here.
The M6 discs are an innovative next-generation option for patients needing artificial disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion. These unique products are designed to mimic your spine’s natural structure and movement, including backward and forward, side to side, up and down, and rotate left and right. The M6 artificial discs are the only discs designed with a shock-absorbing nucleus and fiber annulus that work together to replicate the controlled range of movement and cushioning effect of the natural disc. By allowing your spine to move naturally, the M6 artificial discs are designed to potentially minimize the stress to adjacent discs and other vertebral structures.
