The M6 artificial cervical disc offers an innovative option for artificial cervical disc replacement because of its unique design which is based on a natural disc’s qualities.
Engineered to replicate your own disc, the M6 is the only artificial disc that incorporates an artificial nucleus (made from polycarbonate urethane) and a woven fiber annulus (made from polyethylene). The M6 artificial nucleus and annulus are designed to provide the same motion characteristics of a natural disc.
- Natural motion in all 6 degrees of freedom.
- Outer plates coated with a titanium plasma spray that promotes bone growth into the metal plates, providing long term fixation and stability of the disc in the bone.
