Millions of people around the world suffer from cervical disc degeneration, resulting in chronic pain of the neck, shoulders, arms and hands. In addition to pain, other symptoms include weakness, tingling or numbness. The M6-C™ artificial cervical disc offers an innovative non-fusion solution in treating degeneration of the cervical disc. The M6-C device is the only artificial cervical disc that mimics the structure and movement of a natural disc. To date more than 45,000 patients worldwide have received the M6-C disc. With its unique design, the M6-C disc is the natural choice.
Neck and Arm Pain
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.
The M6-C disc is an innovative next-generation option for patients needing artificial disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion. This unique product is 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-C disc is the only disc 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-C artificial disc is designed to potentially minimize the stress to adjacent discs and other vertebral structures.
