Default ProDisc-C Doctor Locator

The Prestige Disc website has a "Find a Doctor" Feature.

http://www.prestigedisc.com/pages/form_find_doctor.html

Dr. B's website has a list of the ADR's

http://www.dr-bertagnoli.com/artific...placement.html

It says he favors the ProDisc-C however I can not find a "Find a Doctor" feature on their site.

http://www.synthesprodisc.com/html/Prodisc-C.84.0.html

It appears they are a German Company and Dr. B had some input into the Development of the Disc. I do not know this to be fact, although it would certainly make sense to consult such an experienced surgeon. http://www.synthesprodisc.com/html/B...aphy.85.0.html

Their PDF Files on Surgical Technique are quite good for a layperson like myself.

http://www.synthesprodisc.com/html/S...que.105.0.html

Patient PDF's for Back and Neck

http://www.synthesprodisc.com/html/P...tion.77.0.html

Finding an experienced (Or at least trained Surgeon this early after FDA Approval) seems to be difficult. Why wouldn't they list Physicians that have been trained on their site? Perhaps I missed it?

My interest in the ProDisc-C is greater than the Prestige for 2 reasons:

1. It looks like a less invasive device in terms of installation
2. It can be used at multiple levels

My biggest concern is the insert wearing out, whereas with the Prestige I suppose there could be some free metal fragments over time, but who knows which one will stand the test of time best?

From what I can tell with my limited research so far, both should last a "lifetime" as long as they are correctly placed.

Can anyone provide me with a list of Surgeons trained with the ProDisc-C in the United States?
