- prodisc devices have been used in over 225,000 implantations
WEST CHESTER, Pa., Oct. 19, 2022 – Centinel Spine®, LLC, a leading global medical device company addressing cervical and lumbar spinal disease through anterior surgical access, today announced it has won a 2022 Orthopedics This Week Spine Technology Award in the Best New Technology category for its prodisc® Cervical Portfolio & Match-the-Disc Platform. This is the third consecutive year that the Company has won a Spine Technology Award. Centinel Spine accepted the award at the North American Spine Society (NASS) 37th Annual Meeting, held from October 12-15 in Chicago, Illinois.
“We are honored to be recognized once again by Orthopedics This Week as a leader in motion preservation, as each year this award program showcases plenty of exciting innovation,” said Centinel Spine CEO Steve Murray. “With three additional FDA approvals, 2022 has been a monumental year for our cervical total disc replacement portfolio and further builds on the “match the disc to the patient” thesis that we have demonstrated in lumbar disc arthroplasty. This leading suite of total disc replacement solutions offers a variety of endplate configurations to best match the individual patient anatomy, and has been validated extensively by research and real-world use. We look forward to the difference that it will continue to make for surgeons and patients worldwide.”
In July, the Company received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for 1-level indications for the prodisc C Vivo, prodisc C SK, and prodisc C Nova devices. The prodisc C Vivo and prodisc C Nova products have been in use outside the U.S. since 2009, and prodisc C Vivo is currently one of the most frequently implanted total disc replacements devices outside of the U.S. The prodisc C Vivo product has keel-less endplates including a convex, superior endplate to match more concave vertebral anatomy, while the prodisc C SK and prodisc C Nova implant designs have flat endplates with low-profile keels to better match flat vertebral anatomy.
All prodisc products incorporate prodisc CORE technology, the basis behind the predictable clinical outcomes of every prodisc device in over 225,000 implantations worldwide.* The variety of cervical TDR endplate configurations, coupled with the proven and well-documented prodisc CORE technology, allows for optimization of implant fit and surgical outcomes.
The prodisc technology is the most studied and clinically-proven total disc replacement system in the world, validated after 30 years of clinical use and by over 540 published papers.** Along with prodisc C, Centinel Spine’s cervical TDR portfolio now includes four devices approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for 1-level indications, offering the broadest spectrum of solutions to address surgeon preference and individual patient anatomy
Orthopedics This Week’s annual Spine Technology Awards recognize inventors, engineering teams, surgeons and their companies for creating the most innovative, enduring, and practical products to treat back care. Winners are determined by a panel of judges, who assess applications for originality, clinical relevance, clinical problem solving, likelihood of improving patient outcomes, and cost effectiveness.
ACCORDING TO ROBIN YOUNG

“Patients, physicians, hospitals, and reimbursers rely on the inspiration and perspiration of engineers and surgeon-inventors to improve outcomes and to control costs.
