Over 2 years now.

It's been over 2 years since my surgery. Disc itself is intact, surgery was a success. I changed jobs now, work at a neat office as manager, so my physical stress levels have diminished. My facets are doing better, but still need work. I'm looking to contact Dr. Pimenta for the Zyga Glyder facet resurfacing but haven't been successful so far. Any help would do wonders!


  1. Nice to hear from you Mike.

    As chance would have it, I was looking at facet pain treatment after my op under Boeree close to two years ago.

    Did Pimenta simply not return your emails?

    I suspect we may be stuck with just living with it.

  2. hi Mike,

    My name is Raul. I´m from spain and I had a ADR surgery 1 moth ago, still feeling pain bad thing. I have a pdf in my computer about facets systems resurfacing. It´s very interesting because speak about three diferents types of systems; glyder, fenix and zyre. I don´t know how can I send it to you. My mail is If I can do something more for you only tell me.

    Good luck

  3. One more thing;

    there is a product called Orthokine. Maybe it can help you. Who knows. Good luck Mike.

  4. Any luck with Pimenta, Mike?

    I'm about at the point where I wouldn't mind getting it posteriorly fused - if it was thought it would work well.

    Let us know how you get on.

  5. Hi Mike,
    I too have tried to contact Dr. Pimenta, with no luck.
    I wish some one would provide us with a contact or something of a facility that is providing the operation.

    My pain is getting worst as my facets flare nearly every day.
