Artificial Disc Replacement
This site has outdated information on artificial disc replacement. The FDA has approved many discs in the USA, however, they are only to be used at one level, not covered by insurance and surgeons, although very good, may not have the experience they have in Germany. In Minnesota, The Midwest Spine Institute is an option, In California, The LA Spine Institute does them. The Charite is seldom used anymore due better technology in discs and placement procedures have evolved. In Germany contact Stenum Hospital or Pro-Spine, if you can pay for the surgery and require multiple levels they are able to accomodate you and do so on a regular basis. I have personally talked to many that have traveled from the USA and are very happy with the results. I need multiple levels and if I had the money, I would be there.
