I got my Operative/Procedure Report yesterday and in the description of the procedure, it says.."She also understood the off-label use of bone morphogenic protein infused and its advantages for a 3-level fusion."
Although I'm almost three months out with no complications, I find this disconcerting for a couple of reasons - one is that it's not true that I understood - I was never told. The other is that I've read that BMP should not be used and is not FDA approved for cervical fusion, but the surgeon can "get around" this approval by using "off-label." :?
Anybody else know if they've had off-label BMP used in their ACDF?
