If you're looking for an experienced ADR surgeon in Georgia area...

I just got a letter from my 2 level Prodisc surgeon and it says he's moving his practice to Columbus, Georgia (south of Atlanta???) So if you're looking for a recommendation, I highly recommend Dr. L Erik Westerlund. The move is supposed to happen in the next month. He was part of the FDA clinical trials and a super nice guy, not arrogant at all!
Injured 9/01

New ins paid for 2 level lumbar prodisc surgery on 4/7/08 (at age 39) with Dr. Westerlund, at Core Orthop
