Treatment Options for Degenerative Disc Disease

Historically, treatment options for degenerative disc disease have included doing nothing, physical therapy, opioids for pain management, spinal fusion, and total disc replacement. Total disc replacement and spinal fusion have been considered the gold standard treatments for degenerative disc disease however, they both tend to be extremely invasive.

 

Spinal Stabilization Technologies™ introduces a lesser invasive alternative treatment: The PerQdisc™ Nucleus Replacement System.

What Causes Degenerative Disc Disease?

As the body ages, the support structure better known as the spine, also breaks down, or degenerates. The same occurs with intervertebral discs which can result in degenerative disc disease (DDD) in some people. Degenerative disc disease is usually characterized by a loss of water content in the disc that can occur over time.

PerQdisc™ Nucleus Replacement System

Spinal Stabilization Technologies offers an innovative, minimally-invasive lumbar spine disc nucleus replacement technology for degenerative disc disease. The patent-pending PerQdisc™ devise replaces the physical space of the nucleus (jelly-like material inside the disc) and restores motion and weight bearing capabilities in an anatomical fashion.

Minimally-Invasive Disc Nucleus Replacement Technology

Spinal Stabilization Technologies, LLC (SST) is a medical device company developing a lumbar intervertebral disc nucleus replacement. The PerQdisc™ is an in-situ formed silicone based prosthesis designed to support a minimally invasive surgical approach for patients undergoing nucleus replacement surgery due to degenerative disc disease (DDD). After a total nuclectomy, the PerQdisc™ replaces the actual physical space of the enucleated area, recreating physiologic motion and subsequently allowing redistribution of weight bearing forces. The goal of the PerQdisc™ is to offer a motion-preserving option to patients who would otherwise be a candidate for spinal fusion. SST is currently enrolling patients for a clinical trial called NUCLEUS 181 in Europe to evaluate the safety of the PerQdisc™ lumbar intervertebral disc nucleus replacement system.

 

The PerQdisc™ lumbar intervertebral disc nucleus replacement system is not approved for sale in any country.
