Anyone use DonJoy Spinalogic for post cervical fusions?

I just learned this week .....from a phone call from the company rep, not my doctor or nurse, mind you..... that my doctor ordered the DonJoy Spinalogic Bone Growth Stimulator for me to use for my multi=level fusion done over 3 weeks ago.

I am so thankful that I had searched through this board because I was at least familar with bone growth stimulators.

Anyway, in reading their website and in doing a search on here, it appears that it has been used for mainly lumbar fusions.

Anyone with cervical fusions have experience with it?

Of the numerous BGS out there, it seems to be the least invasive in terms of daily use: only 30 mins a day for 6 to 9 mos. But the real question is does it work for cervical spineys?

Thanks again in advance----you guys really are the best!!

    I am 4 weeks post-op cervical. The day after surgery I started using the cervical bone stimulator. 4 hours per day. It is not uncomfortable and once I put it on I forget it is there. It is not an attractive device but a great conversation piece. lol. Good luck on your recovery
