Has an yone had the Dynesys Dynamic Stabilization System or X stop in place of a fusion? If so can you share with me your outcome or thoughts on these procedures. Or if you have just heard from someone about them. These were a couple alternatives given to me by a different surgeon. I am not thrilled with the X stop because it seems to help more with just leg pain and I have terrible back pan well. And as far as the Dynesys Dynamic Stabilization, it being new bothers me and the possible outcome. I would hate to have it done and then end up having a fusion anyway.
