Risky, but it does work, in some cases.

First, Talk to your doctor about the Mobi-C, have them submit the paperwork to the insurance.
Then I read about Dr. Katzman in FL. and Dr. Kenneth Light in CA. so are they for real? I think if I got the M6 at C 6/7/T1 then had the PEEK cage removed at C 3/4, I might have my life back.
52 yr old 5ft.7in. 139 lbs. non-smoker conservative treatments failed
2007 fusion C4-6 w/peek implants plate & screws, failed due to long term use of cox-2 inhibitor
