Default Has anyone had this rare procedure?

Hi All. I wanted to ask if anyone here has had fusion reversal. I know there are very few docs who do this controversial procedure.
thanks

For clarity: are you asking about a fusion revision, revision to another, typically ADR? Or are you asking about a fusion reversal, which I'm assuming would be taking out fusion hardware but I'm not sure what would be done at that point.

There have been some who've discussed fusion revision that you could find by searching. I can't remember names but remember seeing it discussed

Yes, me, you can search about my fusion reversal in this forum.

Now I am better in some ways, but worse in others.. I really do not know if my adr will last some years before I fuse again.. or maybe in a future the definitive adr is invented and we can get that, who knows?

Also, if you have had fusion for more than one year your facets may not move so your adr would be a fusion cage itself in that case, be aware of that.

Sure, but please keep in mind I am just a newbie in this forum and not a Doc at all.
