    Dr Antonacci discussion about VBT vs ASC

    Ok, some questions are answered from the old days of VBT here (2013 era) from this very informative video

    ASC involves the mini open and also the incision of the Anterior Ligament. Much evolved from adult anterior (ALIF) fusion surgeries of the past....(Anterior releases)

    ASC on adults up to age 54. It looks like L3 is the lowest they can go.....

    I will admit, I do miss my flip phone. (smiley face)

    Dr Betz interview on ASC

    They incise the disc also along with the longitudinal ligament..... And the disc heals after surgery.....

    Discs do heal.....
