Stenum Hospital Truth

May 14 2016, Stenum Hospital – Many of you have now likely read about The Stenum Hospital Nightmare.

Stenum Hospital http://www.artificialdiscreplacement.com/stenum-hospital.html

Now you can get the Truth about this story.
This surgery and fraud took place years ago and the “Stenum Nightmare” was the result of the actions of one individual, Malte Petersen.
As a result of this fraud and other misconduct Mr. Petersen and the entire management team at Stenum Hospital were let go some time ago.
There was no medical misconduct or medical mistake made.
This patient received the implant that his insurance approved and the surgery was a success.
The unfortunate post surgical complications are a known issue with the Prestige Cervical Disc Replacement implant and Stenum Hospital no longer recommends this product.
The new team at Stenum Hospital are committed to quality in both implant selection and honesty in all their communications.
It has also come to our attention that Malte Petersen has set up shop and again patients may be exposed to these activities. Please be aware!

Artificial Disc Replacement implants now in use offer greatly improved safety and something called “Quality of Motion” that makes them truly deserve the title “Artificial Disc Replacement”.

What is Quality of Motion
Modern Artificial Disc Replacement technology has come a long way now and thousands of fusion surgeries are being avoided. These improved artificial disc replacement products can now provide a natural “Quality of Motion” unlike any of the early artificial disc replacement implants.

Improved Design

Unlike early artificial disc replacement products, the advanced artificial disc replacements available today have improved end plate attachment design to reduce implant migration and the risk of a revision surgery. These artificial disc replacement products also now have “motion control” to reduce joint hyper-activity which leads to the long term complications and pain caused by those early ball-in-socket type artificial disc replacement products. This joint hyper-activity has been found to stress the facet joints, ligaments, and muscles causing complications and pain. The new generation artificial disc replacement implants also feature the added safety of shock absorption. This shock absorption will help to prevent injury to adjacent discs and vertebra.

We are now using the breakthrough Spinal Kinetics M6 artificial disc replacement for the Lumbar and Cervical spine. The Spinal Kinetics M6 is the first artificial disc replacement product to truly deserve the title “Artificial Disc Replacement”. This implant achieves the ultimate goal of replicating the healthy human disc. By providing shock absorption and graded variable motion resistance, the M6 disc replacement works in concert with the remaining human discs, to provide the best possible outcome. This “Quality of Motion” is a major benefit not available in any other disc replacement implant we have seen!

Spinal Fusion Alternatives

Many people ask what is spinal fusion surgery and what are the options and other spinal fusion alternatives besides Disc Replacement Options?

The DCI® Dynamic Cervical Implant
The DCI® Dynamic Cervical Implant bridges the gap between fusion and disc replacement options by addressing the potential downsides of fusion and by offering the advantages of motion preservation to a wider patient population.

Spinal Fusion Alternative

Spinal Fusion Alternative

The Coflex® Interlaminar Stabilization procedure is a new, non-fusion solution that allows you to be able to do the things you love most! The coflex® device is a titanium metal implant that helps keep your spine stable after surgical decompression. The coflex® device also helps maintain the normal foraminal height and motion in your spine where the coflex® was implanted. It’s amazingly strong, yet simple, and flexible enough to support your spine without having to fuse your bones together.

Spinal Fusion Alternative

Another spinal fusion alternative is The DSS Stabilization System® by Paradigm Spine.
The DSS system provides Semi-Rigid and Rigid Stabilization for customized Spine Stabilization according to Pathology at the Functional Spine Unit (FSU).
It allows Multilevel, Semi-Rigid Spine Stabilization or Single Level Rigid Spine Stabilization as an adjunct to fusion or in Disc Replacement Hybrid Surgeries where additional stability is required.
The DSS Stabilization System’s Modularity provides flexibility to match anatomy and the rigidity of the stabilization required.
The DSS Stabilization System also has Cannulated polyaxial screws for precise Minimally Invasive Surgery approach.

Spinal Fusion Alternative

Quality of a Fusion
When spinal fusion surgery must be done, either in combination with disc replacement or stand alone fusion, restoring the original disc spacing is important to achieve good results.

Disc Replacement Options may be confusing as well. Disc Replacement Specialist Dr. Karsten Ritter-Lang, with his team have had good outcomes for the Treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease in the Lumbar Spine Using Spinal Kinetics M6 Lumbar disc replacement implant.

Artificial Disc Replacement technology has come a long way and thousands of spinal fusions are now being avoided. Improved artificial disc replacement implants now provide a natural “Quality of Motion” unlike the early ball-in-socket disc replacement designs.

Fusion Surgery Options


One revolutionary approach to achieve this spacing in the lumbar spine. The AxiaLIF (Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion) System includes surgical instruments for creating a safe and reproducible pre-sacral access route to the L5-S1 vertebral bodies. The AxiaLIF technique features novel instrumentation to enable standard of care fusion principles, distraction and stabilization of the anterior lumbar column while mitigating the soft tissue trauma associated with traditional lumbar fusion through open surgical incisions. Using AxiaLIF, the lumbar spine is accessed through a minimally invasive opening adjacent to the sacral bone. This atraumatic tissue plane alleviates the need for the surgeon to cut through soft tissues like muscles and ligaments, thus lessening patient pain and the likelihood of complications.

Disc Replacement in the US

Many people call us and ask what can’t I get disc replacement in the US or why did my doctor not offer me disc replacement.
You can get disc replacement in the US, but there are several limitations.

The first set of limitations come from the FDA. Since the studies were typically only done on patients with one bad disc the FDA has for the most part limited use of disc replacement in the USA to one disc surgeries.

The second limitation is age, again the FDA only allowed patients under 60 in the trials so the approval only allows for disc replacement surgery for those under 60 years of age.

If these FDA limitations were not enough to eliminate most patients from being offered disc replacement in the US as it turns out many US insurance carriers still consider disc replacement experimental and specifically exclude the disc replacement surgery from payment.

So let’s say you fit within these guidelines and are in fact offered disc replacement, now you must consider what type of product you are being offered!
Most disc replacement products approved by the FDA and offered in the US are what we consider outdated. These early free floating ball in socket type disc replacement implants have several draw backs. Surgical complications like implant migrations and implant subsidence were fairly common in early designs. Long term complications like facet joint wear and post op pain are also common due to the unnatural and uncontrolled freedom of motion and fixed center of rotation in these early disc replacement designs.

Due to these limitations fewer than 10 percent of Americans will be offered disc replacement in the USdisc replacement and many will chose to go overseas for safer more advanced disc replacement implants like the Spinal Kinetics M6 Disc Replacement.

Tragically, patients with multiple bad discs, severe loss of disc space, previous surgeries and many other non-medically relevant factors may be excluded from disc replacement surgery in error. Additionally, it is quite likely that single level procedures are often performed when multi-level indications exist, resulting in poor results and risky second surgeries. Multi-level Disc Replacements are performed with great success, and three or four level Lumbar and Cervical disc replacements are quite common.

The Spinal Kinetics M6 Disc Replacement eliminates the complications and long term risks with new technology and design that prevents implant migration and controls motion in a natural way.

Disc Replacement Options may be confusing. Disc Replacement Specialist Dr. Karsten Ritter-Lang, with his team have had good outcomes for the Treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease in the Lumbar Spine Using Spinal Kinetics M6 Lumbar disc replacement implant.

Artificial Disc Replacement technology has come a long way and thousands of spinal fusions are now being avoided. Improved artificial disc replacement implants now provide a natural “Quality of Motion” unlike the early ball-in-socket disc replacement designs.
