A spinal implant is adapted for translateral insertion into a disc space between two vertebrae. The implant has a mid-longitudinal axis and opposed arcuate portions for engaging each of the adjacent vertebral bodies. A maximum cross sectional dimension transverse to the mid-longitudinal axis is in a range of 22mm to 30mm. The translateral spinal fusion implant of the present invention has a good surface area of contact and permits a good stability so as to withstand torque, and in case of a threaded implant, increases the depth which any threads are able to penetrate the vertebrae.
