Disc Plication/ Mitek Anchor Surgeons

Trying to find a list of good surgeons who do the disc plication/ mitek anchor or other disc repositioning surgeons besides Larry Wolford. I'm already working on a consult there, but would like to know of others. Prerably others with lots of experience and good track records.

Also, it seems the mitek is the most common/well known disc repositioning surgeries. Are there any others?

Re: Disc Plication/ Mitek Anchor Surgeons

There are many problems being reported with the Miteks. I had Mitek Anchor surgery and endured great complications including resorption.

Re: Disc Plication/ Mitek Anchor Surgeons

what did you have done with Dr. Glyman?

By prostheses you mean Joint replacement?

I'm not excited about surgery but the pain is unbearable. I have no quality of life anymore. I'm almost 4 months into a splint, the last 3 in an NM one and it does not seem to be working. I'm not ready to jump to surgery but its time to begin talking to surgeons to understand my issues and options.

Re: Disc Plication/ Mitek Anchor Surgeons

Yes, joint replacement with the surgeon in Texas. I also had Mitek surgery by the same doctor and endured significant bone loss. I am told resorption is a major problem with the Miteks.

I would recommend to get a second opinion.
