For Dr. Bierstedt, I contacted his office directly versus using a liaison in the U.S. His name is Malte.

For Dr. Zeegers, I filled in the form on his website and he called me almost immediately.

In both cases, I wrote up my history in a two page summary and sent it to them so we would have a place to start the dialogue.

I have not contacted Dr. Clavel but, will just do so at his website.

One of the best places we have in Arizona is The Barrow Institute but, I would only consider them for the Mobi-C (cervical disc). Their Mobi-C surgeon is Dr. Chang. I'm still trying to get into see him.

The Pro-Disc is the only lumbar disc approved in the U.S. but, I believe that is about to change shortly. Hopefully, one of the lumbar patients will fill in the details on it for you. I just got my lumbar MRI report today and am concerned that I may need an ADR in my lumbar spine. I would not consider the Pro-Disc because of all the unfortunate stories I have read about it.
Please share what you know about a new ADR disc? If only I could have waited a few more months.
