Mobi C: Cervical Spine Surgery Option: Improved Treatment for Cervical Disc Disease
After a rigorous FDA clinical trial, Mobi-C received approval in 2013, making it the first cervical disc approved for use at both one and two-levels. In 2018, the FDA approved the 7-year clinical results, confirming Mobi-C at two-levels demonstrated SUPERIORITY over fusion based on overall study success. Results at 7 years found Mobi-C at one-level to be statistically non-inferior or equivalent to fusion in terms of overall study success. Those patients who received two-level cervical disc replacement during the trial returned to work on average approximately three weeks earlier as compared to the fusion patients. At 7 years, the Mobi-C patients also had lower rates of subsequent surgeries and reduced rates of ongoing degeneration at spinal segments adjacent to the surgery compared to fusion.
