Neurosurgeon Nicholas Voss, MD, of Dothan Neuro-Spine-Pain at Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., is providing artificial disc replacements with the M6-C implant, reports WDHN Dothan First.

Three things to know:

1. The M6-C artificial cervical disc mimics the anatomic structure of a natural disc by incorporating an artificial visco-elastic nucleus and fiber annulus into its design.

2. The implant allows for shock absorption at the implanted level and provides a controlled range of motion when the spine transitions in its complex movements.

3. The M6-C artificial disc was developed by Spinal Kinetics, a company acquired by Orthofix in 2018.
