My doctor is XXXXXX in Santa Barbara. My L3-4 is severely degenerative, bone on bone. My L4-5 is bulging and causing severe pain. My surgeon wants to do a fusion on L3-4 and a ADR on L4-5. I've had a CT and a discogram done and it was positive that those disc were the ones causing me my pain. I've had numerous 2nd and 3rd opinions and everyone agrees that this is what needs to be done. I would like to know if anyone has had this type of surgery done and what it is like. My doctor was recommended by a friend that had a successful ADR done a few years ago and by my lawyer. Any input would be very much appreciated.
