Results of a recently published study demonstrated Mobi-C artificial disc replacement surgery had good clinical results; however, more data and longer follow-up times are needed to determine what long-term effects the surgery may have on patients with cervical spondylosis.
Researchers conducted a retrospective study of 65 patients who underwent Mobi-C artificial disc Mobi-C artificial disc (LDR) replacement surgery for cervical spondylosis at 10 centers. The average age of the patients was 44.8 years. Eight patients had C3–C4 replacement, 24 had C4–C5 replacement, 26 had C5–C6 replacement and seven had C6–C7 replacement.
