Since 2003, Dr. Adamo dedicated his time and his personal finances to this project. He designed the first cervical artificial disc for dogs, which was biomechanically tested at the laboratory of the Human Hospital of the University of Wisconsin. These results were the pre-requisite to start a pilot clinical study to test the safety and the efficacy of this implant in dogs affected by “disc associated wobbler syndrome”. Two dogs affected by this disease were than treated with cervical disc arthroplasty and followed to 3 years after surgery. In both dogs the disc implant successfully restored a “normal neurological status”, and a second MRI repeated 2 years after the disc implantation showed no complication with the implant. (Study published in JAVMA 2011). The 2011 was the start of a new era for the cure of disc associated wobbler syndrome in dogs. At this time, more than 40 patients/year, affected by disc associated wobbler syndrome at one, and multiple disc sites, are treated with cervical disc replacement and all with excellent results.
