Again, I would seriously look into the various types of ADR's out there along with other options avaiable before locking into the Charite'.

I was a candidate for the Charite'. And I would have had it done had my insurance paid for it. But as it turns out.. i had a fusion and two surgeons now feel this was the best option for me post op.

Also, I've heard some horrific outcomes with the lumbar Charite' ADR. Cervically, it has a very good track record, but not for the lumbar region. Once it's in place (cleated) it's is very difficult to remove and is often not properly placed and can cause all sorts of issues if not precisely implanted.
Just a word of caution for you guy to just grab some information before you leap into ADR lumbar surgery.

I had the disogram done, and I was not sedated for mine and the pain was unbelievable and it hung in there for quite a while for me. But it was worth it as it showed a blown disc that everyone had overlooked for over 3 years.

Keep us posted.:wave:
