The Advanced Disc Replacement Spinal Restoration Center in Beverly Hills, Calif., run by Todd Lanman, MD, is participating in two clinical trials for artificial cervical discs developed by Centinel Spine and Synergy Spine Solutions.
1. The center is exploring the safety and efficacy of the prodisc Vivo and SK for the treatment of two-level cervical disc disease.
2. The Mobi-C disc will be used as the control in the study. For every two patients who receive a prodisc C or SK, a third will receive a Mobic-C disc.
3. The Synergy Disc trial could be a better suited option for patients requiring a single-level disc replacement, according to a May 21 news release. Patients who already have had a cervical disc replacement at one level can participate in the Synergy trial.
4. The Synergy Disc, designed by neurosurgeon Neil Duggal, MD, is intended for the reconstruction of a disc between C3-C7 after a single discectomy.
