Neurosurgeon Richard Wohns, MD, performed an M6-C artificial cervical disc replacement at the NeoSpine outpatient spine surgery center in Puyallup, Wash., on Oct. 16.

Four things to know:

1. The M6-C disc is designed for patients needing an artificial disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion.

2. The implant features a shock-absorbing nucleus and fiber annulus that imitate the anatomic structure of a natural disc.

3. The M6-C disc provides a controlled range of motion when the spine transitions in its combined complex movements.

4. Dr. Wohns is founder and medical director of NeoSpine, which opened in 2001.
