Hello everyone

My name is Alejandro (38 years old) from Peru. I am glad to be in this ADR Support Community and to know the stories of each one of you in the search to improve your back conditions and therefore your quality of life.

At present I am evaluating to undertake a ADR surgery for my lumbar back at L4/L5 and L5/S1 levels. I am trying to read and learn all the experiences posted by you. By this time, I have sent my spine information to Instituto Clavel in Spain (Dr. Clavel), ONZ (Dr. Bierstedt) and Stenum (Dr. Ritter-Lang) in Germany. I will be gathering all their proposals for ADR surgery in order to take the best option. This process (spine conditiion) has been very difficult for me.

Many thanks for this space.

Alejandro, thanks for posting and sharing. It's been a while since I communicated with doctors in South America, but I am sure there are some really good ones in your country and continent! I'll try to find my notes from many years ago.

Feel free to private message me. And thanks for your perfect English!

Buenas Noches

Es bueno considerar muchas opciones; sin embargo, el Dr. Ritter Lang y el Hospital Stinum han tenido complicaciones graves. Investiga más sobre ellos.
