I'm not sure this has been posted here yet, as I have been gone for a few weeks now, but thought I would post it for those with spinal problems to view.

Please make sure you get past the advertisements then the video will start the CBS story on a new procedure that looks to be very promising for spinal repair.

It looks to be exciting, but remember it has a ways to go and has not been FDA approved yet….but they hope it will be by 2015

I myself,... should be back beginning on the 1st if June, and have missed you all dearly.;contentBody

Hi SE!! Good to see you:)...You've definitely been missed!

I posted about this the morning it came out back a few weeks ago on CBS Sunday Morning but I don't think many people saw the thread as I just wrote about it as I wasn't sure about linking a site....LOL...So I hope that it gets more hits for you because yes...It looks really promising:)

Thanks for posting, SE. I have a few friends who have had fusions, and they've had difficult recoveries. This looks great, and was very interesting.

Hope you're well:)

I just watched the video. Thanks... what a great procedure for disk issues!
One thing they didn't mention, but I wonder about is whether the two healing agents must be extracted from one's own blood. If so, that would explain why it has taken so long for someone to develop the procedure.
C4-T4 Scoliosis (disk degeneration, stenosis, narrowed neuroforamen, bone spurs), RT hip and SI joint damage from car accident. Also, pectus excavatum, supraventricular tacycardia and mitral valve prolapse syndrome.
Current meds: Ultram ER 300mg & 2-3x 10mg Hydrocodone daily. Oxycodone 10mg for BT. .25-.5mg xanax as needed for sleep, Verapamil 240mg SR (for tachycardia).

I watched this video last week I think and was very intrigued by it, just wish it could be made available sooner than 2015! I hope that it does get approval eventually and can help people (me included) suffering from back pain.
