Hi all, brand new here. I've been suffering from lower back pain from two herniated discs for almost 7 months now, and I'm researching into various options for surgery at this point. None of the pain management I've tried is working (PT, injections, cursing life, etc). I am still young, and very much uninterested in fusing my discs prior to 40.
After doing some research, the X-Stop looks like an interesting alternative (too bad the Wallis system isn't available here in the USA). Has anyone had this surgery? Does anyone know of good surgeons in the NorthWest who aren't just focused on old school slice and dice back surgeries? Please let me know, any information/advice is highly appreciated!
