M6-C Disc Replacement Procedure
People living with cervical degenerative disc disease can benefit greatly from the M6-C artificial cervical disk replacement surgery offered at NJ Spine and Orthopedics. This innovative procedure is performed by our highly skilled spine surgeons and is perfect for people who don’t want to undergo spinal fusion surgery. It is the only surgery that provides a “natural way” to help patients preserve motion and reduce pain in the spinal column, and we take pride in being able to offer one of the most innovative procedures that exist today.
Designed with an artificial shock-absorbing nucleus and fiber annulus that mimics the spine’s natural structure, the M6-C disc is the only implanted procedure offered in the United States that enables compression like a natural disc. If chronic pain in the neck, back, or spine inconveniences your daily life, the M6-C disc can help change your life for the better. Our experienced surgeons and committed medical staff at NJ Spine and Orthopedics will listen to your personal health goals to ensure your M6-C disc replacement procedure is a complete success.
Benefits of an M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement
Patients who receive the M6-C disc can expect to see a significant improvement in their range of motion. The M6-C is not only in line with the natural curve of your spine to allow it to move naturally but is also the only artificial disc that works with your other discs to create a stable motion, putting less strain on healthy discs to minimize adjacent disease. Other benefits of the M6-C disc include:
- Could last 10 or more years
- 15 to 20 minutes faster than other procedures
- Approved by the FDA in 2019
Undergoing the M6-C disc replacement procedure at one of our NJ Spine and Orthopedics locations near you will be a decision you won’t regret. Why get a major surgery if you don’t have to? With this technique, you can expect less pain, a smaller scar, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery.
What to Expect from the M6-C Artificial Cervical Disk Replacement Procedure
This minimally invasive surgery will be performed by one of our board-certified spine surgeons who will walk you through the entire process from start to finish. First, your surgeon will remove the ruptured or herniated disc through a small incision. Once the damaged disc is removed, the M6-C disc will be inserted into that same area between adjacent vertebrae to maintain height and flexibility. After the M6-C disc is successfully placed in the spine, your surgeon will close the incision using a specialized set of instruments. It’s as simple as that.
All surgeries, including minimally invasive ones, can carry some level of discomfort. With the M6-C disc procedure performed at NJ Spine and Orthopedics, you will be able to leave our facility either the same day or the following day after the operation. By adhering to the specific guidelines and activities provided by your surgeon, we can work together to ensure you obtain optimal results.
