Wish I had been that lucky with only 1 level being done....
I had a 5 levels done on both sides.
I had an ACDF mesh cage inserted with 2 kick plates(as the surgeons notes dictate). Then on the posterior side I had a PCF/corpectomy where the bone is shaved out with the iliac crest(hip bone inserted with a DePuy Mountaineer System put in.

I didn't get much research other than from the manufacturers web site. And all that was just jargon to sell it to the hospitals & doctors. I really wish there was something for the patients to find out about hardware & such.

I also had ordered a "Bone Fusion Stimulator" ordered for me. I talked to the Neurosurgeon & he said they have a 97% fusion success rate even with smokers or users of nicotine... Which I am trying to quit. But when you are in so much pain at times I really crave a smoke.
