I don't mean this to come across as rude, but why don't you just ring up one of the specialists and ask them?

My understand, when speaking to a rep from Mobi-C is that it was cost too. I am also under the impression that when Cervical ADR takes place, it is a much simpler procedure and the down time from life is a lot quicker than lumbar ADR. I think it's just a matter of time before it will be approved.

If YOU are willing to pay for it, then I think you will get it. If you are willing to pay for it, why don't you go the extra $2-3,000 and go to Germany and have the best operate on you. This is what I would be doing, if I go ahead at a later date. I wouldn't be covered by my health insurance because I was given a compensation payout from the MVA. So, I figure if I have to fork out $30,000 what's another couple of thousand for airfares and accomodation.
Their hygiene is second to none and they have the most experinced surgeons in the world.

Just my 2 cents worth.

MVA April 2003 - Whiplash
C6/7, MRI shows large right paracentral disc protrusion with extension centrally. Mild compression of cervical cord and obscuring the neural foramen and exiting nerve root. No uncinate process hypertrophy no facet joint degeneration. no left neural foramina narrowing.
1200mg of Neurontin.

In the last 3 years have seen 1 gen surg, 2 neurosurg and 1 ortho surg. All rec fusion, only 1 recommends ADR or fusion.

Have been off Neurontin since Nov 2006
