Only just read that the Charite lumbar disc is no longer available and J&J is replacing with InMotion. My husband had a Charite implanted 3 years ago with amazing results (lucky guy), but now that I'm up for a similar procedure there isn't a good alternative. My surgeon doesn't like ProDisc, but is advises that I have a hybrid fusion.
I'm only 35yo and was doing Ironman and Half Ironman triathlons until all went down the drain last year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I walked into my surgeons office expecting to be able to get a Charite, too, and walked out mortified after seeing all the hardware involved in the hybrid alternative.
Many, many thanks in advance
