Hello there, I'm brand new to this post and I'm glad that I found this discussion forum. My name Is Josh Piceno and I live In Aurora Il. and I wanted to know if theres a good Neuro Surgeon in the Chicago area that is reputible in disc replacement. I have a bulging disc in my c4 c5 section and I'm 28 yrs old. My neuro recomended a disc replacement and I'm a bit scared since I never had a surgery done before. How safe is it and is it possible the thing could slip and hit an artery. What are the risks of getting a replacement and are they slim. And last, what is the long term affect? how long is this artificial disc supposed to last?
