two level Mobi C

You can appeal this, two level mobi c is approved by the FDA.

If you are in real bad shape, have it done and then go for reimbursement.

Trials

They are hard to get into, and once you enroll, you do not know if you are going to get the fusion or the disc.

If you can afford it, go to Germany and get the M6, be done with it.

As with all surgeries, especially the...
