What are the requirements of Simplify Trial?

If you are a qualified patient candidate and choose to join Simplify Trial, you will receive Simplify Disc and all study-related care from a team of spine specialists at one of the trial locations.

The pre-operative screening visit and follow up visits will include X-rays, neurological examination, and questionnaires.

Following your Simplify Disc procedure, you will meet with your study surgeon for a post-operative, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months visit.

After 24 months you will continue to be followed thereafter on an annual basis until follow- up is no longer required by the FDA.

These visits are an important part of the Simplify Trial, as they allow your surgeon to closely monitor your results. You will receive compensation following the completion of most of the study visits.
