Los Angeles spinal neurosurgeon Dr. Todd H. Lanman joined us live to tell us all about a new disc replacement surgery for patients suffering from cervical disc regeneration. This is a surgical procedure that involves removing a damaged or degenerated cervical disc and replacing it with an artificial disc device. The M6-C by Orthofix is unique in that it mirrors the nuanced movement and normal compression of an anatomic cervical disc since the core of the M6 acts like a cushion just like a normal human disc. Dr. Lanman has been doing this surgery since July and will talk about the benefits. For more information on Dr. Todd Lanman, you can visit his website or follow him on social media.
