Default Cervical ADR is NOT banned in Australila!!!

I have first-hand information regarding the status of cervical ADR in Oz.

Cervical ADR is NOT banned in Australia. They are dealing with the same kind of reimbursement issues there that we have in the US. Cervical ADR procedures are currently being done in Australia. However, these procedures are being done without Medicare or Health Fund funding.

1997 MVA
2000 L4-5 Microdiscectomy/laminotomy
2001 L5-S1 Micro-d/lami
2002 L4-S1 Charite' ADR - SUCCESS!
2009 C3-C4, C5-C6-C7, T1-T2 ProDisc-C Nova
Summer 2009, more bad thoracic discs!
