A new vision
for cervical disc
Simplify® Disc is a motion preserving cervical artificial disc designed to allow full diagnostic imaging with MRI, minimizing patient exposure to radiation from CT scans. Simplify Disc is composed of polymer & ceramic composite – so it has no metal wear from articulating components. Anatomic in design, it’s available in heights as low as 4mm to treat a broad range of patients. video >>
Simplify® Disc requires no CT imaging*, minimizing patient exposure to high-dose ionizing radiation and its associated risks.
“The average effective does in cervical spine CTs is 5.0 mSv, which is the equivalent of 400 chest X-rays.”
– Linet MS, et al. CA Cancer JClin 2012.
*Surgeon may order a CT scan if new symptoms require additional medical attention.
Simplify® Disc is designed to preserve range of motion, and is available in disc heights as low as 4mm to treat a broad range of patients. Most other cervical artificial discs only offer heights greater than 5.5mm. video >>
Simplify® Disc is composed of polymer & ceramic composite with compliant endplates. Other discs use rigid metal endplates which can impinge & wear.
“PEEK-OPTIMA® particles were more biocompatible than UHMWPE.”
– Hallab NJ, et al. J Biomed Mater Res B. 2011

Simplify® Disc is inserted as one preassembled unit using a sreamlined three-step procedure, enabling efficient implantation and decreased intraoperative time compared to discs inserted as separate components. video >>
