Hello. As an introduction I must admit to being a Physical Therapist of 25 years, still practicing as a " working manager" (like that title) in a mid-sized hospital. Had successful Pro-Disc L4/5 Dec 2010, returning to full duty 2 weeks post sx.
Long story short, I'm months [insert prayer here] from its removal and 2 disc fusion. I'm seeking out surgical options as I want the entire implant (plating included) removed - vs posterior fusion with plates in place.
I would like to to have this topic moved to the most appropriate home, where I can keep all updated on the journey. I'm not here to bash Stryker, I have an orthopedic -focus, did my homework, and bought into the reduced recovery time frames involved.
But now it's time to pay the Piper. My skill set might be useful to others here and I will try to be an active participant on this site.
Any information on ADR/TRD REVISIONS would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance
