Poor surgeon. Installed an artificial disc and the foramen was still constantly irritated leaving me with ever increasing pain. Three doctors have reviewed and said I need the foramen opened and that since inflammation of the nerve never went away the area around the nerve and closest to the disc is fusing. Because of this I will also never recommend artificial disc. Even fusions for that matter. You can regenerate discs with PRP and it should be worth it, and/or surgically open the foramen.
