Simplify cervical disc

The most clinically effective cervical total disc replacement (cTDR)1
The cervical disc replacement with the highest overall clinical success rate at one and two levels.1

The difference is clear

Simplify Cervical Disc is the only cTDR to achieve clinical superiority at primary endpoints for 1- and 2-levels compared to anterior cervical disectomy and fusion (ACDF). 2

Simplify Cervical Disc is designed to fit patient anatomy, protect facets, and prevent overstuffing. It is designed for enhanced visualization through magnetic resonsance imaging (MRI).3

See the difference

Anatomic disc heights
Simplify Cervical Disc features the lowest available disc heights, starting at 4mm, to better match patient anatomies and protect facet joints.

Radiologic design
Simplify Cervical Disc’s PEEK endplates and ceramic core permit detailed anatomic visualization on MR imaging3 postoperatively.

Physiologic motion
Simplify Cervical Disc’s unique biconvex, dual articulation allows for pure translation, coupled motion patterns and a variable center of rotation.

The results are clear

Simplify Cervical Disc has the highest overall clinical success rate for both 1 and 2-levels compared to any approved cervical disc.1

Simplify Disc was approved for 1-level use in September 2020 and achieved superiority to fusion with an overall success rate of 93.0% versus 73.6%. The 2-level approval was received in April 2021 and the Simplify Disc was again superior to ACDF- 86.7% versus 77.1%.2
