    I came accross you by accident, i dont know if you are still looking for someone to talk to that has had a total disc replacement, but in case you are i have actually had one. This is the third year now after surgery. I had been in terrible pain for three years before hand and came accross once again by accident a wonderful Orthopaedic Surgeon in Qld that has given me the titanium disc that you are looking for. If you wish to contact me about this, my email address is jlincoln11@hotmail.com as i may not enter on to this site again. Regards Jenny

    I know the Charite is still in clinical trials at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, but it was approved by the FDA last November. Probably not a lot of surgeons doing the surgery yet. Also at NEBH is a doctor named James Rainville. He has had tremendous success with an intensive excercise physical therapy program that helps to avoid surgery. You might want to do a google search on him to read more about it.
