Mobi-C® cervical disc

Dr. Day was one of the first neurosurgeons in Montana to use the Mobi-C® artificial cervical disc replacement surgery to maintain neck motion. If you have a degenerative cervical disc, experience arm pain, or have neurologic symptoms such as weakness or numbness related to a cervical disc, we may be able to help you!

Who can benefit from the Mobi-C® disk implant?

  • Adults aged 21 to 67 years.
  • Those experiencing arm pain or neurological symptoms such as weakness or numbness, with or without neck pain.
  • Those with a diagnosed damaged cervical disc, which might be causing loss of feeling and movement, pain, weakness, or tingling down the arm and possibly into the hands.
  • Those who've tried nonsurgical care options for a minimum of six weeks and pain continues to persist, affecting the quality of life.

The benefits of Mobi-C®

  • Alternative to a spine fusion. Less surgery time, reduced pain and quicker recovery time.
  • Suitable for use at one or two levels of the spine. A revolutionary development for patients who suffer from certain types of cervical or spinal issues or diseases.
  • Greater range of motion post-surgery. 96 percent of Mobi-C® artificial disc replacement patients demonstrated four total degrees of motion.
  • Lower risk of complications. Major complications are less than half the rate of traditional spinal fusion procedures.

How Mobi-C® works

  • Designed to replicate the natural motion of the cervical spine.
  • The mobile core slides and rotates inside the disc, self-adjusting to your cervical spine's movements, allowing the Mobi-C® to react to the natural motion of your cervical spine.
  • The mobile core is designed to allow for some movement, reducing the forces between the implant and vertebral bodies.
  • The Mobi-C® does not need invasive fixation features found in some cervical disc replacement devices.
