Vicky: “When I came out of surgery, I mean this may sound funny, but my pain was gone.”


This is Dr.Bierstedts first time coming to the states for a seminar like this. He says it’s a great opportunity to explain to a patient what they can expect from surgery, explain the technology, and also ease some of their fears of going under the knife in a foreign country.


Dr.Bierstedts: “I can have the first picture of the patients and of their problems of the pain and so it’s much more better, I can much more better say if a surgery helps the patient.”


The testimonials show how beneficial a surgery like this can be..but one major downfall might be the price tag. For just one disc replacement it will run you around 30 thousand dollars…maybe that’s why more and more millionaire celebrities are opting to go all the way around the world for treatment.
