The publication that you, Harrison, directed me to, via QMP, titled RoundTables In Spine Surgery;Long-Term Results Of Lumbar Arthroplasty arrived today and absolutely exceeds my expectations. Have you seen this yourself? Likely. It's fantastic. If this, along with the Dr.'s letter, does not approve my surgery, I don't know what else I can do. It's hands down, the best thing I've read that supports long term results of lumbar arthroplasty. Thank-you for helping me get my hands on this. If this succeeds, any and everyone who is still trying to get covered or reimbursed should purchase this bound booklet. I guess we should wait and see. In any event, it is reassuring me of my decision to have adr two weeks from today, regardless of compensation. Thanks again. Cindy
