Hi, I am a new member, so I hope I am doing this right. I just found out today that I have been accepted into the Wallis Study. I will be receiving the Wallis device and mu surgery is set for July 30th.

My problem is with the L4-L5. The Wallis study is for the treatment of mild to moderate DDD of the lumbar spine. The patients receive either a Wallis, Charite or Prodisc-L. I can provide more information concerning the structure of the Wallis device, etc., if anyone has questions.

One benefit of the Wallis device is that it is reversible.

Wish me luck!
