They can now market their product to the US public.

I think that those of us who have had the Prodisc both here an abroad should be in their commercials....

I know that us "Prodisc Poster Girls" (Lettski & I) have been wanting to do that for some time...

Anyone else?

Harrison, since you are from a marketing background - how would you recommend approaching them?

Did Synthes release the discs for public use already?
I haven't heard anything from my surgeon yet. I was told late September. Do you have a link?

THX!

By the way, I got GREAT gams. Use me too!<span class="ev_code_WHITE">............................ .................................................. ................................................</span>

Eddie,

Here is the link to the other thread started on this: http://adrsupport.org/eve/forums/a/t...1/m/5921000402

It is my understanding that it is FDA approved for one level at this time.

Maria,

Well, that makes 3 of us - I know that there are more

Poncho,

To funny to see this tread today as I was not going to say anything until it materialized. But what the heck I'm too excited. I was contacted today by Dr Delamarter himself he asked if I would be willing to work with Synthes on a project. They are putting together a spot to give to all the insurance companies to show them what life can be like after ADR with a ProDisc. He said I was the first patient that came to mind and he wanted to know if he could give them my name and number.

I am more then willing to do anything I can for ProDisc and the patient community. They would like to do some filming and I may have to come to LA. But the mountain biking is so much better here in Tahoe. I will keep you all posted if it does materialize and if so I will be telling them about all my ProDisc friends.
