This site is designed to save you time by offering only the most useful resources on Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR). Our website offers you hand-picked articles, patient stories, a supportive discussion forum and one-on-one support through unique patient guide support.
When approaching ADR, patients must consider facts and opinions from a wide range of resources: doctors, patients, medical professionals & manufacturers. This range of information is needed to piece together an objective, well-founded knowledge base to help patients make educated choices about their spinal health care.
As ADR is comparatively new in the U.K. and is complex, we recommend engaging in as much research & learning as possible. Consider the unique bundle of support services on this site to help you find, read, interact, learn and help you decide among the many options for improving your spinal health.
Our discussion forum comprises of people who have had either ADR surgery, hybrid surgery (spinal fusion & ADR) or spinal fusion alone and have placed their story for others to read and learn from their experiences.
If you are considering spinal surgery, in particular ADR then a good place to start on the discussion forum is the FAQ's. All references from there are from legitimate medical sources.
We welcome patient's to join our discussion forum either to share your story, learn more or ask questions.
