Problems can occur when you have spine surgery, including surgery with prodisc implants. There is a risk that the surgery may not make you feel better or
may cause you to feel worse. If this happens, you may need another surgery to help you feel better. View the specific problems that can occur during or
after prodisc L or prodisc C surgery.
