Question for lumbar ADR friends....

Since you had ADR surgery, do you have any lifting restrictions that will follow you the rest of your life? What Artificial disk did you have put in and what location of the lumbar spine? How long ago was your surgery?



  • My 360 fusion and ADR at the L4/L5 were done in November 2008. The type was from Titan Spine called ENDOSKELETON TA. I had lifting restrictions right after surgery as expected but now I lift whatever I want/have to. That doesn't mean I am not careful when I lift. I do stop and think about lifting before I lift anything around 50 or so pounds or ask my husband. I have lifted my dogs into my truck, with care, and they are German Shepherds at about 95 pounds. Whatever you decide good luck and always ask your doctor before doing anything new.
  • Did you have the Pro-disk implanted at L4/5? Sounds like you are doing well now. What state did you have the surgery in, if you don't mind me asking?

  • I had an ENDOSKELETON device. You can check it out on the Titan Spine website or here. My surgeon invented the device and is co-founder of this very website. I feel really well and I have also been riding my motorcycle when the weather is nice. I know it has only been 7 months so I am still cautious but I am living my life.
  • I wish us all that very same success! Thanks for the info.
