As above-what motivated you to do it, what did the MD say, how do you feel now, etc. I would appreciate any feedback, am considering a re-do to hopefully get rid of chronic pain.
Thanks! :H


  • I have the Bryan artificial disc - level C5-6, implanted in March 04, manafactured by Medtronics. It has worked very well for me. I was rear ended in Aug 05. It held up well, no problem - but have since had surgery on lumbar due to the accident. check out Dr. James Lynch in Reno Nevada, Spine Nevada; they specialize in artificial cervical disc replacement.
    Good luck on your decision.
