5. The Implant is Removed

Here is the actual implant removed from my spine – taken right in the operating room in Germany! Notice the bone material on the implant where it was attached to my spine.

At this point, the surgeons are now focused on preparing for the new implants. Notice in the bottom image, my friend Mark Mintzer is “hands on” during this very high risk 6 hour revision surgery.
