Do any of these doctors do the Maverick disk? I know Bitan doesn't, however he is probably the most experienced Charite disc Dr. in the USA. I personally am holding out until the FDA approves the Maverick. There are Dr's doing trials of these next-generation discs in NY. I believe HSS on NY is but I'm not sure of the Dr's name. (Sandhu?, Cammisa?) You may want to consider holding out for the better disks to be approved next year. I'm all about the titanium...

Just my 2 cents.

Good luck!
