Defective Mobi-C Disc Causing Issues in Patients
The Mobi-C disc is one of the most common options for replacement cervical discs around the world. The medical device was first used in 2004 and has continued to be used successfully in patients with cervical disc issues (that is, disc issues in the neck). Without a doubt, many people who have undergone a Mobi-C disc procedure have had successful outcomes. However, some people have actually suffered harm because of the medical devices; that is, they have been harmed because the devices can be defective (which causes harm after the procedure).
If the Mobi-c disc is defective, affected individuals may need to undergo many other surgical procedures to address the defective medical device. Without a doubt, multiple medical procedures could take a toll on affected individuals. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that a recovery will never be achieved.

Understanding the Purpose of Mobi-C Disc Replacement Procedures
You might have heard of disc fusion surgery, a procedure performed to address damaged discs in affected individuals. Mobi-c disc replacement surgery is similar – in that it replaces the damaged disc and could help alleviate pain resulting from the disc issues. However, Mobi-c disc replacements are recommended over fusion surgery or other options for a number of reasons, including the following:
- Mobi-c disc replacement allows for replacement of the damaged disc (alleviating arm tingling, arm pain, and neck pain, for instance)
- Mobi-c disc replacement allows for neck movement (including bending the neck front-to-back, side-to-side, and turning left-to-right)
- Mobi-c disc replacement allows for matching disc height (which results in pinched nerves being un-trapped)
Overall, successful Mobi-c disc replacement procedures seem to allow patients to return to their normal lives. That is, the procedure tends to do much more than just address pain.
Understanding Normal Risks Associated with Mobi-C Disc Replacement Procedures
Without a doubt, all surgeries come with a number of risks. Some of the risks associated with disc replacement surgeries, in general, include the following: paralysis; neurological issues; dysphagia issues; headaches; pain. Additionally, other risks could arise if the doctor performing the surgery is unqualified, untrained, or inexperienced, for instance. However, even if everything goes well with the surgery (there are no complications whatsoever) and the doctor is perfectly competent, other issues could arise – more specifically, issues associated with defective Mobi-C discs.
Can Mobi-C Discs be Defective?
Any product, including medical devices, can be defective. If a Mobi-C disc is defective, the device could break, shift, not work as it should, or even be installed incorrectly (it all depends on the type of defect present in the product). Defects are typically categorized into three types – manufacturing defects (the materials used, for instance), design defects (the mechanics behind how the device should work, for instance), and labeling defects (the necessary warnings/instructions necessary for proper use). If a Mobi-C disc is defective, it simply will not be effective once it has been used to replace a damaged disc. Therefore, the individuals affected by defective replacement discs will likely have to undergo additional procedures for revision (it is possible for multiple procedures to be necessary). Undoubtedly, the extra procedures will likely lead to expensive medical bills as well as stress to the body (including pain that could have been prevented). Unfortunately, the defective replacement disc could cause harm that could potentially prevent affected parties from recovering from their neck issues.
Do You Have the Right to Sue?
Can you sue for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered associated with a defective Mobi-c disc? Yes, based on the details surrounding the incident and the resulting harm, you could sue. Who can you sue? You could be eligible to sue the manufacturer of the defective medical device. This is because all companies, even the ones that make medical devices, have a duty to ensure that all their products are safe to use as intended. Therefore, if any of their products have defects in manufacturing, design, or labeling, the company could be liable for any resulting harm. Can you sue anyone else? In some cases, medical professionals are aware of issues with certain medical devices, but they continue to use them on their patients. If your doctor knowingly used a defective medical device on you, your doctor could be liable for the harm suffered. It is important to note that liability could also be shared.
