>>Don't know if this is the proper forum, but here goes...
>>
>>My purpose for this note is to track down information on a recently
>publicized direct disc replacement with a man made disc filled with air and
>accordingly, retain a flexible joint.
>>
>>The work I do is machine building, where a person must be able to crawl
>into various corners of the machine to build and/or repair them.
>>I am also involved in skating, skiing, dancing. Obviously, for all these
>reasons, keeping a joint flexible is important to me.
>>
>>
>>I already have C5/6 fused. (25 years ago) with no problems.
>>
>>Recently, I was in a rear-end auto accident... now my C6/7 disc is ruptured
>and restricting the spinal cord... (intermittant pain, loss of feeling in
>hands, arms, etc.)... Doctors want to fuse this level also...
>>
>>
>>Would appreciate information on this new method of repairing the affected
>joint.
