Prodisc L-Lumbar Total Disc Replacement

Lumbar Spine Anatomy

prodisc Is The Most Studied TDR System In The World

Beginning with clinical usage in 1990, the prodisc design has been validated with over 250,000 device implantations worldwide and more than 540 published papers.

determined safe & effective for intractable SCDD

The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement has been determined to be safe and effective in the treatment of lumbar degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels from L3 to S1. It is the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two level use in the lumbar spine. 

The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement surgery is intended to:

• Remove the diseased disc
• Restore normal disc height
• Decompress surrounding neural structures
• Maintain Spinal Balance and Motion
• Decelerate Adjacent Level Reoperations
• Accelerate the resumption of activities of daily living
• Improve patient function

Why prodisc L?

4 Benefits of Lumbar Disc Replacement with
prodisc L

  • Increased Range of Motion and Spinal Flexibility – In a spinal fusion, vertebrae are fused together eliminating motion in those segments, while disc replacement preserves the natural mobility of the spine.
  • LDR is Less Invasive than Spinal Fusion – Bone grafts are often used in spinal fusion between vertebrae, requiring the removal of some bone from the spine. During LDR, the emphasis is on only removing the damaged disc, preserving more bone.
  • Fewer Post-Surgery Complications – LDR keeps your spinal mobility, allowing for natural load distribution, which can reduce the risk of future adjacent segment surgeries.
  • Proven Years of Clinical Data for Safety and Long-Term Results – Since its FDA approval in 2004, LDR has years of clinical data showcasing its safety and proven results in back pain relief.

The vertebral bodies encase the spinal cord to provide protection. When stacked on top of each other, they form the spinal column which provides stability for the head and upper body.

The spinal cord and the nerve exits are located within the spinal canal. The intervertebral discs are located between the vertebral bodies. These discs cushion shock forces, acting as “shock absorbers”. The discs in conjunction with the vertebral joints facilitate motion by turning, stretching and bending of the neck.

  • prodisc L has a very long clinical history (25+ years) and has been widely used throughout the world. The prodisc line of total disc replacements (TDRs) are the most widely studied TDRs, with over 400 peer-reviewed published studies, reporting on over 13,000 patients. The first implantation of a prodisc L took place in 1990, and the second generation design received US PMA approval in 2006.

  • This page outlines some of the clinical studies, biomechanical, and cost-effectiveness evaluations that have been published on prodisc L.

  • No other disc replacement system has been studied more: nearly 40% of all TDR papers report on prodisc. More published lives than for any other system with over 13,000 patients reported on in over 400 articles.

  • The prodisc design has been validated with over 125,000 device implantations and a reported reoperation rate of less than 1%.
