World-Renowned Spine Experts Teach Patients How to Get Fixed, Not Fused.
Berlin, Germany -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/13/2017 --ENANDE GmbH announced today that the Kindle version of the book, To Fuse or Not to Fuse: How Artificial Disc Replacement, Hybrid Fusion, and Fusion Alternatives are Changing the World of Spinal Fusion became an Amazon #1 Bestseller on March 9th 2017, having reached #1 in four categories in the United States, three categories in Canada, and three categories in Germany. The book later became featured as the #1 bestseller in Australia too, in the categories of orthopedic surgery and others. Amazon also featured the book as the #1 Hot New Release in multiple categories. The book is available now on Amazon.
The authors, surgeons Karsten Ritter-Lang M.D., and Jan Spiller, M.D., released this, their seminal work on Artificial Disc Replacement and other alternatives to spinal fusion, with the hope of educating the world about the benefits of Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR), also known at Total Disc Replacement (TDR). This one-of-a-kind book promises to help people with chronic back and neck pain, showing how they can find a permanent solution and avoid the complications associated with fusion of the neck and back.
Artificial Disc Replacement involves complete removal of one or more damaged or degenerated discs, followed by replacement with a unique prosthesis, restoring proper disc height and normal motion. Ritter-Lang shares the successes they have experienced with ADR and other fusion alternatives and contrasts these with the prevalence of so-called Adjacent Segment Syndrome or Disease.
"While spinal fusion has its place," says Karsten Ritter-Lang, M.D., "the statistics show a very high rate of failures at adjacent levels following fusion. With disc replacement, we can help people get back to their normal lives, often completely free of pain. And we can do this at multiple levels, lumbar and cervical, without increased complication rates."
To Fuse or Not to Fuse exposes the worldwide epidemic of spinal fusion and offers alternative treatments and surgeries that are designed to restore patients to natural levels of mobility while avoiding follow-on surgeries and complications. It also catalogues many of the different prostheses available to patients and surgeons.
Drs. Ritter-Lang and Jan Spiller perform disc replacement surgeries hundreds of times a year from orthopedic hospitals in Germany. Patients travel from around the world to take advantage of their expertise and experience. In addition, spine surgeons from across the globe come to learn their surgical and rehabilitative techniques.
