Talking to your doctor
It is important that you talk with your doctor about your condition and symptoms. You should discuss both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options with your doctor. Only your doctor can determine if you are a good candidate for ProDisc TDR surgery.
It is very important that you let your doctor know about any allergies you have, any medications you take on a regular basis, if you are pregnant, or have any other treated or untreated illnesses, such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, cardiac disease, diabetes, hepatitis, osteoporosis, previous surgeries or injuries you may have that may impact whether ProDisc is right for you.
