WEST CHESTER, Pa., May 23, 2023 – Centinel Spine®, LLC, (“the Company”) a leading global medical device company addressing cervical and lumbar spinal disease by providing the most robust and clinically-proven total disc replacement technology platform in the world (prodisc®), will host a major global two-day virtual meeting on lumbar disc arthroplasty featuring the prodisc L TDR as part of the Company’s med+ Medical Education program. This med+ event is presented by the spine surgery faculty of CCV Montpellier and Clinique du Parc, the home of the prodisc technology as invented by Dr. Thierry Marnay. The two-day hybrid event will take place at CCV Montpellier-Castelnau-le-Lez, France and over a live interactive video stream from May 25-26.
This event follows closely upon the nomination of prodisc for the Prix Galien award, which honors innovators in life sciences and medical device technology and is widely regarded as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for the life sciences industry. The Galien nomination recognizes more than 35 years of work by Dr. Marnay in developing and advancing disc replacement techniques for both the cervical spine and lumbar spine. Studies involving thousands of patients have confirmed long-term efficacy and safety (up to 21 years of follow-up).
“The restoration of mobility is a huge advance in spinal surgery,” said Dr. Marnay, further noting, “This course will continue the tradition of providing surgeons around the world with pearls in arthroplasty techniques for efficiently managing patients with degenerative disc disease.”
Participants will review basic and advanced techniques and surgical treatment options for patients with lumbar degenerative disc disease, using the prodisc L TDR, via anterior access of the lumbar spine. The course format includes live observation and broadcast of a variety of indications for lumbar TDR, interspersed with brief lectures and case discussions with expert spine faculty. The worldwide event is intended for both spine and anterior access surgeons.
Esteemed CCV Montpellier faculty includes Dr. Guilhaume Geneste, Dr. Grégory Edgard-Rosa, Dr. Martin Grau Ortiz, Dr. Caroline Hirsch, and Dr. Thierry Marnay. In-person participants will rotate into a surgery for direct observation of techniques, while viewing the remaining cases and all lectures through a live-surgery broadcast. Virtual participants can elect to observe all or any part of the proceedings via a video stream with chat capabilities, accessed through a unique link obtained upon registration.
According to Dr. Grégory Edgard-Rosa, “The upcoming lumbar disc arthroplasty with prodisc L total disc replacement course is a wonderful opportunity for surgeons to learn from the birthplace of modern lumbar disc arthroplasty in the way that they learn best—a combination of lectures, case reviews, and live surgery.”
“Surgeon education is one of our top priorities,” said Centinel Spine CEO Steve Murray. “Our Medical Education program allows surgeons to deepen their knowledge and training by examining the unique anatomy of individuals and gaining an understanding of how our varied prodisc anatomical implant options can be best used to maintain a patient’s mobility.”
