CP-ESP helps to reduce pain and to achieve near-normal disc function.
The stiffness of the deformable core resembles that of the native intervertebral discs. This stiffness is due to a flexible polycarbonate urethane cushion. This flexible cushion, attached to the two metal endplates, provides the disc with its shock-absorbing function and limits the release of particles into the body and the calcification of deformable parts.


Key features

  • Benefits from over 10 years of development
  • 6 degrees of freedom
  • Adaptive center of rotation
  • No surface bearing for increased lifetime
  • Improved stability
  • Shock absorbing
  • The CP-ESP has spikes that ensure primary fixation to the vertebrae being treated.
  • A hydroxyapatite coating over a rough, porous underlayer of T40 pure titanium allows for effective secondary fixation.
  • Heights from 5mm to 7mm
  • Streamlined instrumentation

Symptomatic cervical disc disease, defined as pain (radicular) and/or functional or neurological deficit in the following disease conditions (confirmed by CT scan, MRI or radiographs):

  • Herniated nucleus pulposus
  • Spondyloarthritis (defined as the presence of osteophytes)
  • Nerve root compression
  • Herniated disc
  • Nerve compression
