Third party verify

I verified Dr. Clavel with a third party before my transfer. It was the scariest thing not to know.
They were ISO 9001 compliant. I also checked with Blue Cross Blue Shield Worldwide, find a doctor....

May be too little to late

Dave,
Sorry I am just now seeing this post. Pardon me for being direct, but weight lifting is secondary to mobility.
I had a 2 level M6 below a 3 level fusion and that was in May of 2015. I am...

Please share updated surgical cost estimates

Could patients who have had surgery in Germany or Spain within the last 6 months to a year please share your cost estimates?
My 2 level cervical with M6 in 2015 was $32,000. USD

Just saw another post

Check arthroplasty under general discussion. Seems a story was released on Feb.7th 2019 that the FDA finally approved the M6. Albeit only one level but that's a start.

true

it may not resolve all, but restoration of disk space and stability can help a lot. I had bone on bone with my C6/7. My quality of life is improved by 80%

Depends

It depends on the hypertrophy severity. Dr. Clavel told me that if it's only mild to moderate you may still be a candidate. the only real way to find out for sure is to send your films. Best wishes...

I don't need to quote what you said above, I agree with your post Blizzaga. And if cheaper is not the focus then why mention it. There is enough information about Stenum that deciding on Dr. Clavel...

Pillows

Has anyone tried "My Pillow"? It doesn't look like it gives much support, but I'm willing to give it a try. I heard the one at BB&B is not the same as what you can order online.

I got a high quote too

I contacted him as well. He was using another new adr. Anyway, it was really high. I got a lower cost from Dr. Bertignoli but I went with Dr. Clavel. It was the assessment that decided it for me. Dr....

taking a break

We want them to get rest. Certainly don't want Dr. Clavel and his staff to get burned out. The demand is really high. If my husband's L4/5 goes anymore; we'll be going back to him.

I agree with Harrisson

The disc can look dark from regular aging...What I would want to see is the view looking down through the top of your spine to see if any nerves coming off the spine are infringed. I have heard that...

If my husband needs something more done with his L4/5 after this micro discectomy heals? I will sell a kidney to get him to Dr. Clavel in Spain! :)

For me it was the assessment

Dr. Clavel gave and explained his assessment better than the others. He is also the only one 5bar caught the segmental kyposis that was at c7t1. We have in-laws that love in Germany but we still...

Exclamation My husband may join soon

We are having an MRI today and I think it's his L5/S1 as is so common. Would a microdiscetomy since they have to remove a small portion of bone if that would disqualify him for ADR later?
