approve and ADR for me. My doctor tells me I need an artificial disc replacement at my C4-C5. My insurance co. will not approve an ADR but quickly approved a fusion. According to my doc, he could do the fusion, however, it would not be without problems for me in the future. He explained that my 2 disc levels below C4-C5 have issues as well and can become worse by having the fusion, thereby leaving me to look forward to future surgeries. I was under the impression that this procedure was not an experimental/investigational surgery and have found on the FDA's website the letter of approval for the ADR surgery. I'm frustrated, scared, angry and totally stressed over this. Does anyone have any ideas or words of wisdom that may help me get the insurance co. to approve me for the ADR....please.
