Default 2nd phase

I love how many phases they have to have here; it's why it takes so long and so much money to get something passed. Anyway, for those of us who already have fusion or want this disc for more than one level even w/out fusion can't get it! Why don't they have a separate trial for people in our group? That way we don't interfere with "their numbers".
53 yr old 5ft.7in. 141 lbs. non-smoker conservative treatments failed
2007 fusion C4-6 w/peek implants plate & screws, failed due to long term use of cox-2 inhibitor
2008 revised w/donor bone replace plate & screws
2009 fusion Roi-C C3-4
2015 MRI & CT shows incomplete fusion, significant central canal narrows C3-4, mild posterior spurs C4-6, mjr ddd C6-7, segmental kyphosis at C7-T1 2-level ADR with Dr. Clavel
2019 some ddd C2-3 occipital nerve pain , HO behind ADR C6-7.

Default Trials

They are hard to get into, and once you enroll, you do not know if you are going to get the fusion or the disc.

If you can afford it, go to Germany and get the M6, be done with it.
