An alternative to motion limiting fusion surgery. 

Fusion is a traditional surgery for severe cases of lower back pain. The goal is to permanently fuse the vertebrae together, reducing the movement of that part of your spine. If you have fusion surgery, it may take away your pain, but you may have less motion in your back.

Motion preserving, total disc replacement leaves patients more satisfied.1,2

Another option is the activL® Artificial Disc, which replaces the unhealthy disc in your spine and, rather than eliminating all motion, works to add more natural motion back into a patient’s body. In clinical trials, the disc improved back pain severity an quality of life for patients and has a 90% patient satisfaction rate.1

We encourage you to have a discussion with your surgeon or one of the Washington, D.C. area credentialed surgeons below to see if the activL Artificial Disc is right for you.
