Re: Glucosomine/Chondroitin and BMP fusion

Hi, My BMP was put on sponges and laid on either side of my spine. I had a laminectomy done at the same time and the scrapings from that were mixed with the BMP. They are also using glue to hold the BMP/spacers/cages in place. When I woke up I couldn't believe I had been cut. It was someone on a board that told me the procedure wasn't approved. My surgeon admitted it was off-label. But it worked!
