Degenerative Disk Disease is a common painful condition experienced by many for whom treatments are limited by the anatomy of the spine. The FDA’s Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Devices advisory panel announced the approval of a new medical device late last year; a Cervical Disc System designed to alleviate some of the symptoms of cervical disk damage. The FDA has now officially approved the use of the device as of July 17, 2007.
