Simplify Cervical Disc

The Simplify Cervical Disc is the most clinically effective technology in the cervical total disc replacement (cTDR) procedure segment1 and part of the NuVasive C360 portfolio. It has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for one- and two-level cTDR, and is one of three devices approved for use in two-level cTDR procedures.

The device is designed with key performance functions, including:

Biologic material: The disc is uniquely comprised of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) on ceramic materials with no metal on articulating surfaces, low wear and nickel free. This composition helps optimize the disc’s biocompatibility.

Radiologic design: The materials of the disc allow for enhanced visualization postoperatively through MRI, a key imaging modality in spine.

Anatomic disc heights: The disc is anatomically designed and includes 4, 5 and 6 mm height options. The 4 mm disc, the lowest disc height in the market, closely matches the native disc height of a wide range of patients and was the most used height in the clinical trials.

Physiologic motion: The proprietary disc design provides unique articulation which allows for a variable center of rotation for each treated level and is designed to closely mimic the motion dynamics of a natural spine segment. The disc has the highest Neck Disability Index (NDI) success rate compared to any other approved two-level cervical disc.1

The Simplify Cervical Disc is used to treat a damaged or degenerated disc(s) in the cervical spine through the cTDR procedure. This artificial disc is designed to alleviate or reduce symptoms, such as pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness in the neck and arms, while maintaining a patient’s natural range of motion in the spine.
