Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
When my surgeon discussed my upcoming fusion surgery with me, he mentioned using BMP in the cages that will be used between the vertebrae. I am assuming he meant that it would be used in addition to bone fragments. But I am not sure. Has anyone had this used alone with a fusion? Or is it usually added in addition to bone fragments?
I will definitely need to get clarification on that from him. I thought I had read an article that mentioned that use of the protein alone does not yield a successful fusion, but I can't remember where I read that. Maybe I misread it.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
