  • Needing additional neck surgery after disc replacement

Mobi-C is intended to be used in adults however the safety and effectiveness of the Mobi-C has not been tested in patients younger than 21 years of age or those older than 67. Mobi-C is indicated to take the place of one or two damaged discs (contiguous or adjacent) from levels C3-C7. Patients should have:

  • Tried at least six weeks of other medical treatments such as physical therapy and medicine before having surgery; or
  • Have signs or symptoms that their condition is getting worse even with other medical treatments.

How We Can Help

As an innovative new spinal procedure, long-term studies assessing the safety and effectiveness of lumbar artificial disc replacement are ongoing. Thus far, results report a low complication rate with patient satisfaction good to excellent in most cases.
Not everyone with back pain is a good candidate for a lumbar disc replacement surgery. At the Spine Institute Center for Spinal Restoration, we will perform a number of advanced diagnostic tests to determine if lumbar artificial disc replacement is the right choice for you or if another procedure would better serve your individual needs. To find out if you are a candidate for LADR or to request an in-office consultation, call (310) 828-7757 today.
