Default Dr. Clavel response time

Hi Dasses66,

I have not had any approval from Dr. Clavel in response to the information I sent. Although, I am assuming I am a candidate for ADR because the Texas Back Institute got back to me and recommended ADR at the L4/L5 level and a fusion at the L5/S1 level. I'm hoping Dr. Clavel might want to do ADR at both levels as I think I would rather get ADR than fusion even at L5/S1.


Thanks for your information about Dr. Clavel not returning till January 10th. Yolanda mentioned that they had been away on holiday but I did not realize they had gotten back so late.
1992 Neck injured in bad car accident
For many years taught & choreographed dance & injured lower back in 1997
Loads of conservative treatment
2000, IDET procedure L4/L5 & L5/S1,
2001, orthoscopic laminectomies L4/L5 & L5/S1 & orthoscopic discectomy L4/L5.
Surgeries didn't help
Recent years- stem cell & PRP injections- helped a little.
Recent MRI & x-rays show DDD & facet arthrosis in lower back & DDD & bone spurs in cervical spine.
