About ADRSupport.org

We launched this site during the week of September 12th, 2004 and welcomed visitors from 18 U.S. States. International visitors from Germany, Canada, Australia, Sweden, England and Israel logged on and we received our first inquiries from back patients interested in artificial disc replacement.

We expect the site's activity to grow, but we need help from the global community to provide helpful and instructive content to artificial disc replacement patients.

Your feedback and support can help us in many ways!
