Artificial disc replacement technology has made significant strides in 2021. Here’s a breakdown of three artificial discs making headlines.
Prodisc L: Centinel Spine’s Prodisc L is the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two-level use in the lumbar spine. Its clinical usage began in 1990, and it has been implanted in more than 125,000 surgeries worldwide. It has been touted to treat degenerative disc disease and has a wide selection of available endplates.
Centinel Spine received the Orthopedics This Week Spine Technology Award for the disc’s new angled endplates in October. The American Medical Association in November accepted a new CPT add-on code for the second level of lumbar total disc replacement procedures, the company said.
