Brad | Lumbar Disc Replacement L4-5 L5-S1 | June 2012

I had my multi level Spinal Kinetics M6 ADR lumbar Artificial Disc Replacement at levels L4/L5 and the L5/S1, procedure was performed June 22, 2012 by Dr. Ritter-Lang,I don’t think of myself of ever having a back issue anymore.

 I am totally happy that I went to Dr. Ritter-Lang. I feel that my back is fixed and I only wish I could have done it sooner and also have had my neck done there as well.
I strongly recommend Dr. Ritter-Lang.

He had recieved a single level ProDisc in the US which left him needing additional surgery.
