    Presentation Transcript

    1. Do you suffer from: • Neck Pain? • Shoulder Pain? • Arm Pain? You may have Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)

    2. What is Cervical Disc Degeneration? • Sometimes one of the flexible discs between the vertebrae in your neck begins to deteriorate.

    3. What is Cervical Disc Degeneration? • This is called Cervical Disc Degeneration and may lead to a bulge or herniation that can press upon the nerve roots and/or spinal cord and cause pain.

    4. Symptoms of Cervical DDD • Pain in your neck • Numbness or tingling in one or both of your shoulders, arms, or hands • Pain radiates to one or both of your shoulders and/or arms. • One or both of your shoulders, arms or hands are weaker than they used to be.

    5. Time to “Get Your Bobble Back!”

    6. Current Treatments for Cervical DDD Many people who suffer from Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease rely on: • Medications • Chiropractic Care • Physical Therapy Sometimes these treatments aren’t enough…

    8. Treatment with Surgery The common, “Gold Standard” treatment for Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease is… Spinal Fusion

    9. Treatment with Surgery The type of Spinal Fusion typically performed for patients suffering from Cervical DDD is called: (Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion) What does that mean?... A.C.D.F.

    10. Surgical Fusion: ACDF ACDF with a plate basically involves 3 steps: Step 1) Removal of the Damaged Disc from between two Cervical Vertebrae Step 2) Insertion of a bone fragment into the empty disc space.

    13. Surgical Fusion: ACDF ACDF with a plate basically involves 3 steps: Step 3) Reinforcing the bone fragment with a metal plate and screws so that the two vertebrae will grow together and fuse.

    14. Surgical Fusion: ACDF A successful ACDF will relieve the patient of all or most of his/her DDD symptoms immediately after surgery

    15. Surgical Fusion: ACDF However, the patient’s two Cervical vertebrae will grow together with time, thus becoming “fused” and limiting movement of the neck and head.

    16. Surgical Fusion: ACDF However, the patient’s two Cervical vertebrae will grow together with time, thus becoming “fused” and limiting movement of the neck and head.

    17. Surgical Fusion: ACDF For an ACDF, this loss of motion is necessary in order to address the more serious problem of DDD. But there may be another way…

    19. The NeoDisc ® is an Investigational Product that is currently being evaluated in a Clinical Trial

    20. NeoDisc® Design Goals • NeoDisc® • was developed by • A San Diego company that specializes in minimally disruptive spine surgery.

    21. NeoDisc® Design Goals • NeoDisc® • was designed to meet 4 goals: • 1) Provide support and cushioning between two Cervical Vertebrae similar to how a healthy Cervical Disc would perform.

    22. NeoDisc® Design Goals • NeoDisc® • was designed to meet 4 goals: • 2) Allow Bending Motions • 3) Maintain Device Location and stability

    23. NeoDisc® Design Goals • NeoDisc® • was designed to meet 4 goals: • 4)Allow clear medical imaging such as MRIs and X-Rays. • - Because the NeoDisc®is not made of metal, it is almost completely invisible in the images.

    24. NeoDisc® Design Goals NeoDisc®X-rays Before After • - Because the NeoDisc®is not made of metal, it is almost completely invisible in the images.

    25. NeoDisc® Design Goals NeoDisc®MRIs Before After • - Because the NeoDisc®is not made of metal, it is almost completely invisible in the images.
