    I read an article you wrote where you commented on having successfully removed Pro-Disc C from an anterior approach without too much difficulty. Have you had the same success removing Mobi-c? Sadly I have both and the Mobi-c has been a nightmare, while the Prodisc C is holding up. There is a lot of hype (And pressure/Marketing) pushing these devices, but little in the way of patient counseling about what happens if they do not work out. Thank you.

    Unfortunately, these artificial discs replacements can and do fail and for some reason, the failures seem to find my office. I think I have now removed every variety of cervical ADR and none are real problems to remove. I agree that many surgeons do not discuss the failure rate and how failures are treated as these patients I see had no idea the ADRs could fail and need to be educated on why these discs fail.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I’m working on finding a Travel Companion (I can not travel alone) to see when and how I can proceed.
