FDA Approval of the SB Charite III disk prosthesis sign now

This petition has been started to address specifically the upcoming FDA meeting that is slated for June 2nd 2004 on the SB Charite III disk prosthesis. I along with millions of Americans, who suffer with back pain, am asking for approval by the FDA of the SB Charite III.

With the vast amount of information available from current US studies as well as the years of successful use of this product in various countries, I believe the only logical outcome is for this device be approved immediately and allow the citizens of the USA to benefit from the procedure that has been available an available option to thousands of back pain sufferers for many years. I understand the FDAs standpoint to cautiously release the best possible treatments to the public, but at the same time, the medical field is a growing science, which every day creates new challenges as well as overcomes hurdles that we never thought would be cleared. As it stands now surgeons are using procedures, which at best have a 60-70\% success rate. Currently the ADR procedure is recorded at 87\% with much faster recovery times as well as being less restrictive to future activities.

Currently several lumbar patients have either made, or are in the process of making the trek to other countries to have the procedure performed. Not only does this hurt the economy of the USA by directing funds out of our system, but it also adds an element of risk to the patients both financially and physically. This is something that the FDA cannot control, but it can help to prevent in the future by approving the SB Charite III.

I ask that you take this request into advisement when the final vote comes up on June 2nd. Not only for the current suffers of pack pain but for the future direction of spinal medicine in the USA.

    I haven't lead a productive life for 3 years and decided to wait in pain for the Charite as a fusion would not allow me the movement I miss so badly. Please approve this inplant and give me my life back.
