Has anyone had surgery for artificial disc replacement?

      Instead of a disreplacement I’m considering non-invasive laser surgery for my situation

        @SmilingThruItAll what does laser surgery do? I’m scheduled to have the surgery soon. What is the risk you speak of? I’m nervous and feel like backing out of surgery. Do you ever get arm pain from the ruptured discs?

      No there’s too much risk involved for me. I was told that I could end up worse or if not the same. Since the ruptured discs are in my neck at C4 and C5
