Dr. Z has received a US patent for his revolutionary, artificial spinal disc. The implant was developed for insertion between vertebrae to replace ruptured, degenerated or damaged spinal disks.
What makes this spinal implant different?
Two things make Dr. Z’s spinal implant different from those that were developed previously: 1) it that it can be used in a broader range of patients, and 2) it allows patients to retain flexibility and motion in their spine while maintaining stability.
Retain flexibility and motion in your back and neck while maintaining stability.
Dr. Z’s spinal implant is designed to work like a hip or shoulder joint. The artificial disc is a ball-and-socket joint that will stabilize the involved vertebrae but also allow for a more natural range of motion.
An artificial spinal implant for placement between adjacent vertebrae to replace disk material and to stabilize the involved vertebrae.
Dr. Z’s patented artificial spinal implant will undergo FDA testing and approval before it becomes available to patients.
