LDR has completed the two-level IDE study on the Mobi-C® cervical artificial disc. Now, LDR is the first company to fully enroll and reach two-year follow-up on a concurrent one-level and two-level cervical artificial disc replacement study.
The Mobi-C is mainly designed to reduce the transmission of stresses to the bone-implant interface, minimizing the need for invasive anchoring features such as screws or keels.
"I was excited to participate in LDR's two-level IDE study. I found the Mobi-C system easy to use, and have seen impressive clinical results. Since about half of my patients present with two-level cervical disease, it would be ideal to have a treatment option with both the flexibility and FDA approval to treat two-level indications," said Dr. Hyun W. Bae, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at The Spine Institute in Santa Monica, California.
