ADR - M6

I need a three level lumbar fusion, and because of the severe restrictions I face, I've been researching ADR, specifically the M6. The focus of my research has been the Dr who does the multi level M6 ADR in Barcelona, Spain.
Recently, I sent my information to the Dr's office for further review.

I have several questions and I'm hoping some fellow spinees would have the answers!
1. Has there been any insurance company that has paid for the procedure?
2. What do patients do if they have complications after they return to the United States?
3. Are there any Dr's in the United States who have been trained to address such complications?

I admit, I am desperate for relief and a chance to be pain free! (or even somewhere close to it) It seems that fusion is so restrictive, and it's a 50/50 chance if it will help my back and leg!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
