Spotlight: The Optio-C®— Delivering Strength, Stability, and Relief

A Less Invasive Approach to Neck Fusion

If you have a worn disc or other degenerative condition of the spine, help may come in the form of fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Eager, MD, and the Optio-C® Anterior Cervical System.

The Optio-C® delivers strength and stability to a patient’s neck. With the Optio-C®, Dr. Eager can perform neck fusion from the front rather than the back. This approach is ideal for patients who have already had a neck fusion procedure. Because the device has a low profile, it’s less irritating to soft tissue. And there’s no need to provide additional plating of patients’ prior fusions.

Relief for Patients with Pinched Nerves

Sometimes, a worn disc can cause vertebrae to pinch a nerve. Symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck can include numbness or weakness in the arm as well as headaches. The Optio-C® offers help for these patients as well.

Other Treatment Options for Back and Neck Patients

Depending on your condition, surgery with the Optio-C® may not be right for you. Other surgical treatments for worn spinal discs may include the insertion of titanium cylinders and bone grafts and reinforcement with surgical plates. Our orthopaedic specialists will assess your condition and recommend the best treatment option for you.
