Are there experiences with Dynesys® Dynamic Stabilization System, see: http://www.zimmer.com/z/ctl/op/global/action/1/id/9163/template/PC/prcat/P6/prod/y

I already have a fusion on L4L5 and I need something on the levels above this. I thought maybe it will good to have a kind of flexibility on the above levels by doing Dynesys.

I would be thankfull if somebody can share experience or know somebody who have Dynesys.




  • Here is a recent post from Gwennie. Seems like it is not supported. Scroll down this section. There was another post about it too.


  • Had the Dynesis operation in December 2009 at A Hospital in Basingstoke,England.

    First 6 months all going fine but since then nothing but severe pain(worse than before) and very restricted movement.

    Didn't help to find out soon after the operation that my Surgeon was being investigated by the GMC for negligence and was soon to face a "fitness to practice"hearing.

    Tried contacting Zimmer (the Dynesis manufacturers)who were not in the slightest bit interested in helping(we don't speak to the public) yet when i was originally considering the operation their sales department couldn't have been more helpful...wonder why?

    Anyway i am now having an independent assesment carried out to see if the screws have come loose or moved etc.. as i certainly cannot carry on with this pain and restricted movement.
  • So sorry to hear about the failure with the stabilization implants. I really wanted to try ADR or some kind of implant to provide more shock absorption than the fusion that I am about to schedule. But due to my spondylolisthesis I am not a candidate anyway... might be a good thing actually. I wish you nothing but the best and a speedy solution to your suffering! And you've gotta love the overly available sales dept followed by the non-existent customer service dept after the sale.
