I'm MUCH more confident in the LP-ESP vs the CP-ESP.

I'm reasonably astute, not a medical doctor or a prosthetic engineer... But I don't see any other device as being nearly as well designed. And while it doesn't yet have the implantations that the ProDisc or the M6 have, it does have many years of history.

The CP-ESP has a lot less... And I worry a bit about the elastomer really holding up to 30 years of life... I held a CP-ESP in my hand and it is just tiny... And the elastomer even smaller as you can tell by the imaging.

Still think the CP-ESP is probably the right one, but I'm just a lot less confident in it than I am in the LP.
L4-L5 Broad Diffuse Bulge, mildly contacting left L5 nerve root
L5-S1 Broad Central Disc Protrusion mildly impinging left S1 nerve root
"Mild scoliosis of lumbar spine".
Four central disc protrusions in thoracic spine.

C5-C6, C6-C7 bulging, bone spurs. Imaging not looking good. Successful CP-ESP's placed in Oct 2019 by Dr. Desai.

Delayed lumbar surgery to work on bone density. Considering options now, some but minimal bone density improvement. Will only use LP-ESP.
