Looking for an experienced Prodisc-L doctor Boston to Portland

I live in Southern NH and am looking for an experienced doctor to do my L5-S1 artificial disc. I have a failed Microdisectomy and I am ruling out a fusion due to my physical job and age (31). My job as a golf course superintendent requires me to bend over dozens of time a day. I am sure a fusion would cause me to herniate the next disc up.
Has any one had a surgery with the Prodic-L in the New England area? I am specifically trying to find someone within an hours drive from me which covers Boston, MA to Portland, ME.

Please send me a PM if you don't want to post a name.




  • Scott: Did anyone gave you any information? I am in the same condition you described in November. Can you let me know? Thanks.
  • I doubt he's still on the board. Lots of people post just once or twice and never come back.
