"The common "lore" in USA spine surgery particularly ADR surgery is to avoid removing bone in the areas discussed above for fear of causing a degenerative cascade resulting for example in auto-fusion at the treated levels."

I'm curious as to your sources for this info. It doesn't seems to make a lot of sense. The hip and knee orthopods do tons of bone removal and set in place metal prostheses without these kinds of issues being significant. I can't see that there's much of a difference, physiologically. Can you enlighten me?
