Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement is now the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two-level use in the lumbar spine. The most studied and clinically-proven total disc replacement technology in the world is now the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two-level use in the lumbar spine.


What is a Lumbar Artificial Disc Replacement?

This procedure involves replacing the worn and degenerative intervertebral disc in the lower back with an artificial disc that mimics the movement of your natural disc. This is an alternative to the more traditional lumbar fusion.

Inferior Angled Endplates

The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement system now has a greater selection of endplates available.

These unique endplates have been designed to shift the lordotic angle of the implant to the inferior endplate, expanding the options available to surgeons to better address the varied lumbar anatomy and pathology of patients.

The Most Studied TDR System in the World

Beginning with clinical usage in 1990, the prodisc design has been validated with over 225,000 device implantations worldwide and more than 540 published papers.

Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement – Determined Safe & Effective for Degenerative Disc Disease

The most studied and clinically-proven total disc replacement technology in the world is now the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two-level use in the lumbar spine.

Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement -The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement has been determined to be safe and effective in the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD) at two levels from L3 to S1.

Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement – Mechanism Action

Mechanism of Action

The prodisc implant is a ball and socket design with a fixed center of rotation.

This patented design has been in clinical use since 1990 and utilized across the entire product platform.

The fixed center of rotation allows physiological range of motion while providing stability to the spine and significantly reducing re-operations at the adjacent levels.

The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement has been determined to be safe and effective in the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD) at two levels from L3 to S1.

The prodisc L Total Disc Replacement surgery is intended to:

Remove the diseased disc

Restore normal disc height

Reduce discogenic pain

Potentially provide motion in affected vertebral segment

Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement – Anatomical Sizing

Secure Fixation
Patented central keel and lateral spikes provide secure primary fixation.
Plasma-sprayed titanium surface on bone contacting surfaces promotes integration.


Anatomical Sizing
12 anatomical combinations facilitate an accurate match with the patient’s anatomy.
Medium and large footprints
10, 12 and 14 mm heights
6° and 11º lordotic angles


Prodisc L Anterior Lumbar Total Disc Replacement Design Philosophy


The prodisc L implant has been designed to maintain the physiological range of motion in the spine. The implant was developed using the clinically proven ball and socket concept used in joint replacement implants for over 40 years. The prodisc L implant is composed of three components – two cobalt chrome alloy (CoCrMo) endplates and an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) inlay.


Why do a Lumbar Disc Replacement vs a Fusion?

There are many advantages of doing a disc replacement rather than a fusion of your lower back.

Maintain your lower back motion: a fusion operation fuses the bones in your lower back, causing you to lose motion in that area of your spine. Alternatively, a disc replacement helps you to maintain your motion.
Lowers the chance that you will need additional spine surgery in the future: when spinal segments are fused, there is a chance that the loss of motion in the fused segment adds stress on the levels above or below the fusion, which may cause those levels to break down faster. A disc replacement allows you to maintain your motion, thus decreasing the chance that the levels above and below this site break down.
Quicker recovery: a fusion operation fuses the bones in your lower back which can take anywhere from 8-12+ weeks to fuse together. Whereas in a disc replacement, there are no bones that need to fuse together meaning you can return to activities and the things you love to do sooner.
