What Causes Degenerative Disc Disease?
As the body ages, the discs that support the spine can dehydrate and become a source of pain, this is often referred to as Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD).
Treatment Options for Degenerative Disc Disease
Spinal Stabilization Technologies introduces the PerQdisc Nucleus Replacement System for patients suffering from chronic discogenic lumbar back pain (dLBP).
PerQdisc™ Nucleus Replacement System
The patented PerQdisc replaces the physical space of the nucleus, in an effort to recreate physiological motion, and redistribute the weight bearing forces and mechanical properties of the disc in a more natural fashion.
Spinal Stabilization Technologies Ltd., an international medical device company, is the developer of PerQdisc™, a lumbar intervertebral disc nucleus replacement. The PerQdisc is an in-situ formed silicone-based prosthesis designed for patients undergoing nucleus replacement surgery to treat chronic low back pain associated with degenerative disc disease (DDD). The PerQdisc is designed to replace the patients diseased nucleus pulposus, which may be the source of pain in many patients. The PerQdisc technology is designed to emulate the natural function of the native nucleus pulposus, which allows for a motion-preserving surgical option.
