NuVasive, Inc., the leader in spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally integrated solutions, announced that it has acquired Simplify Medical, a privately held company and developer of the Simplify® Cervical Artificial Disc (Simplify Disc) for cervical total disc replacement (cTDR).

The acquisition of Simplify Medical adds the most clinically effective cTDR technology and further distinguishes NuVasive’s cervical portfolio in the market. The cervical segment of the global spine market represents a $2.6 billion opportunity, and the Company is well-positioned to expand its reach with the addition of the Simplify Disc to its C360™ portfolio. NuVasive is now able to address all key segments of the cervical spine by offering comprehensive, procedurally integrated solutions across anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), posterior cervical fusion (PCF), and cTDR procedures.
