Hello All!!

Does anyone have any info on this?? Anyone with an Artificail disc in there neck? How is it doing? How was the surgery?

Please let me know....my Dr apt didnt quite go as planned yesterday.

Thank you in advance!!


  • Polly,

    I am going to send you some info. ADR can be a very good thing for the neck "if" done right and for the right reasons.

    I will send it via message on Facebook :)

  • Polly, sorry your appt didn't go as you thought it would. I had disk replacement surgery, but since I had more than one disk replaced, my surgeon said she could not use the artificial disk material and instead used cadaver bone.
    Update us when you can on what you learned yesterday.
  • Hi

    I had my disc at c6-c7 replaced in July 2010 here in England. I've got a titanium one in there now and so far so good!! Would be happy to answer any specific questions. Disc replacement seems a lot more common over here than it is in the US.

    I've made a couple of videos which may be sort of helpful.
