I am prospective lower back fusion patient and I don't want to be. I live in Northern Virginia and I am looking for a doctor who does disc replacement surgery successfully in my area. I am really interested in this option as opposed to fusion surgery. Is there anyone out there who has had this surgery in my area? I saw a Bonita Cook in Maryland and would really be interested in contacting her. There was also a guy in Maryland who had this surgery done successfully. Although now I can't find his blog. If anyone out there has anything to share, PLEASE CONTACT ME.
