The Rotaio® implant was created to help patients with certain injuries of the cervical spine. Certain injuries of this region can cause pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.
Most patients will elicit pain in a combination of these regions. This is a premier implant made of high-quality chrome, cobalt, and molybdenum. This artificial disc successfully decompresses and preserves movement in the neck region. What sets it apart from other discs is that the Rotaio® implant replicates the natural pattern of movement of the cervical spine. It also fits in the between vertebrae in a very natural state, which makes is a very SAFE implant.
