Default SAS Blog and Charite 22 year follow-up!!!

Greetings from Berlin. It's almost 3am and I need some sleep. Thursday was day 3 of 4 of the Spine Arthroplasty Society's 7th annual congress. (My fifth.) It's been an incredible road that brought me here. I'm trying to blog the concress, but struggling to keep up.

Today, I attended a celebration of 22 years of Charite' artificial disc replacements. I was honored to meet the very first ADR recipient... implanted with a VERY early version of the Charite in 1984!

Read about it on the blog linked on the GPN site or go directly there by clicking here.

I wish I could write more now... gotta sleep!


PS... I'll catch up on posts and email this weekend... SAS is non-stop, if I blink, I miss something important.
