Help! Need Lumbar Hybrid Surgery Insurance Precedents

I have UnitedHealthcare Insurance (UHC).  UHC has denied my request for Lumbar Hybrid Surgery, which consists of a total disc replacement at one level and a fusion at the adjacent level. 

Has your insurance company approved/paid for it?  If so, please provide the following information to help me establish precedent where insurance companies have covered this treatment:

1. First and last names
2. Name of insurance company
3. Date of treatment
4. Doctor's name

Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated!
