Welcome to the Montpellier Spine Institute.


Since 2010, CCV Montpellier’s research, scientific publication, and training activities in vertebral surgery have been brought together under a single dedicated structure: the INSTITUT MONTPELLIERAIN DU RACHIS.

The institute has two main working areas


The evaluation and collection of data on the outcomes of disc replacement surgery


Like any innovative technique, disc replacement surgery must be continually evaluated and improved, in part through the follow-up questionnaires that our patients fill out before and after surgery, over a period of 5 years.

The institute employs a research associate responsible for linking surgical activity, patient follow-up, and research protocol management. Scientific publication of outcomes from our institute, like those from other research centers, will help shape the direction that spinal surgery will take tomorrow.


Training of orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons
on disc replacement techniques


The institute organizes the visit – either individually or in a training group – of surgeons who wish to be trained on disc replacement.

Group training sessions combine 2 to 3 days of theoretical courses and surgeries on video transmission.

The Institut Montpelliérain du Rachis is a non-profit association, Law 1901, whose headquarters is located at Clinique du Parc, 50 rue Emile Combes, 34170 Castelnau-le-Lez.
