Spine Surgeon Philip Saville MD, Performs First Cervical Total Disc Replacement Surgery in Palm Beach Area Using System that Allows Matching the Disc to the Patient Anatomy

Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, June 12, 2023 – Spine Surgeon Philip Saville MD, today announced the successful first implantation of the prodisc® C Vivo Cervical Total Disc Replacement (TDR) product. The product was approved in July of 2022 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for 1-level indications and is part of a portfolio of four FDA approvedprodisc® C products that allow surgeons to select the implant that best matches a patient’sanatomy and level of disease. Dr. Philip Saville MD, is the first spine surgeon in the Palm Beach area to conduct a total disc replacement procedure using the prodisc® C Vivo implant.

The first prodisc® C Vivo procedure was performed at Palm Beach Gardens Regional Surgery Center on a 55 year-old male. The patient was experiencing neck pain along with radiating discomfort and tingling down their arm that was not resolved through conservative care methods. Dr. Saville recognized the patient as Cervical Total Disc Replacement candidate which allowed them to maintain motion in the affected area, as opposed to a traditional Cervical Fusion.

As an advocate of Disc Replacement procedures in general, the new prodisc® C portfolio of FDA approved devices provides Dr. Saville optionality for his patients. “The old adage of ONE SIZE FITS ALL, does not apply when it comes to a person’s anatomy, and this is especially true for disc replacements.” stated Saville. “Every person is unique, so Centinel Spine’s portfolio of Cervical Discs allows me to select the device to match any individual’s vertebral endplate structure and maintain motion.”

The prodisc® C Vivo system is manufactured by Centinel Spine and has been in clinical use outside the U.S. since 2009 and is currently one of the most frequently implanted TDR devices outside of the U.S. The device has keel-less endplates and combines a unique anatomically designed superior endplate with lateral spikes to optimize fit and provide immediate fixation. The prodisc® C Vivo device incorporates prodisc® CORE technology, the basis behind predictable clinical outcomes of the prodisc® platform after 30 years and over 225,000 implantations worldwide.
