Artificial Disc Replacement

Loading Feed

  Back to All Discussions


I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in the lower back several years ago. My neurosurgeon said I am a good candidate for spinal fusion. When I asked about lumbar disc replacement, he said it has not had much success and therefore wasn't a viable treatment option. I live in St. Louis area and am having a hard time finding disc replacement surgeons who accept a Medicare advantage plan. Does anyone know of any surgeons who perform lumbar disc replacement and accept Medicare advantage plans? I am open even to travel to other states if I must.
