4 Level Lumbar Disc Replacement

Hello, I am scheduled for a 4 level Disc Replacement with Dr Bertagnoli in Germany. Anyone out there have experience with a 4 level Lumbar replacement?

(I have had 5 discectomies in the past and currently have 1 severely herniated disc and 2 moderate bulges)


  • I was told that prior surgery (micro discetomies in my case) would eliminate me as a candidate for disc replacement? Anyone else heard that?

    I would love to hear how your surgery turns out. They don't seem to want to do them here in the US.
