    Just curious as to if people are doing percutaneous disc decompression, which device they are using and why?

    So why DeKompressor?

    I have been doing Acutherm. Have not done enough this year to really report any results. The idea of removing nuclear material seems to be a little like robbing Peter to pay Paul...

    Acutherm looks too much like IDET. I like the control that the rigid probe gives me in targeting a specific area within the disk. I also like getting some goo out to see that I am making the area behind the herniation smaller.

    I hope the quality of work you do is not reflected by your staff's culinary sophistication ;)

    At least make it "On the Border"
    But I'd prefer Papasitos if there is one by you.

    Call King or Acorda and ask for me to give a talk.
