Hey Jeff, nice to see you. I hope you and Pauline are well.

This system looks much like TFAS. Regan was in the TFAS trial a couple of years ago. Because I've been down for the count with my t-spine problems, I have not been to the conferences in a couple of years, so I'm not totally up to speed on this.

Why are you looking at this?

I would think that in a system like yours, you'd be looking at limiting motion or even fusing, instead of restoring motion. Are your discs auto-fusing anyway?

I hope to talk to you soon. All the best,

Mark

Mark,
I have no idea whether it's right for me at all.... just looks very interesting for some folks that need certain types of ADR revision procedures.

I'm really not auto-fused......I have some lateral ligament ossification at one level, but it is mild to moderate and has not progressed since 2007 (at least to my layman's eye). The other two lumbar ADR levels appear to have no significant ossification.

Mark, Pauline and I hope and pray that your current spine problems are relieved soon.

Best Regards,
Jeff
