Course details

This webinar is the first webinar entirely dedicated to spine arthroplasty and focused on a new generation of cervical and lumbar disc prostheses: using visco-elastic technology.

This webinar is led by some members of the S.A.C (Spine Arthroplasty Community) sub-group of the GECO.

The objective is to give you an overview of the concepts and the functional results linked to this innovative technology.

Thanks to their monobloc design visco-elastic prostheses are aimed to restore physiological movements providing six degrees of freedom and three-dimensional motion including shock absorption.
