Artificial lumbar disc surgery

Started by TerryEden on 05/20/2013 12:25pm

Does anyone have any experience with a disc replacement in the L4-5 area? I need a laminectomy and fusion, and am wondering if the artificial disc is a good alternative to fusion.

My doctor suggested this too but I googled this and found that the body may reject it as a foreign object thus causing more complications. I opted for the traditional rods and screws. My advice to to web search everything and be a well informed patient. Never be afraid to ask questions of your doctor.
