    Biologics for the spine Where we are now

    It is widely believed that in the future, success will mean a combination of the right genes, growth factors, and stem cells…and even using biomechanical devices for later stages of DDD where the biomechanics are altered.”

    Jackie, In regards to my DDD in my neck, I want to say PLEASE, HURRY UP. A disc repair injection of some sort is going to be huge......and will change things.

    I was lucky with my timing on my surgeries. It all worked out pretty good, but now I am waiting with everything above T2. My adjacent level above my fusion mass is becoming achy and poppy, (along with my neck) and is causing fatigue.....It would be nice to be able to go in and have disc injections to help with things....Repair injections.

    Susan hasn’t posted in awhile, but I found a stem cell outfit in Panama. Its worth taking a peek. I’m into diving, and dove Coiba Island, and read about things in Panama. Sharks and stem cells are interesting....(smiley face)

    We are going in the right direction....

    I am very hopeful.
