This past summer, Dr. Coufal had the fortunate opportunity to operate with Dr. Rudolf Bertagnoli, the co-inventor of the Prodisc artificial disc. At his private clinic in Straubing, Germany (outside of Munich), Dr. Coufal was able to observe the application of next generation artificial disc prostheses to the treatment of degenerative conditions of both the cervical and lumbar spine.


Dr. Coufal was most appreciative of Dr. Bertagnoli's hospitality and looks forward to further collaboration as he expands the La Jolla surgeon training site for the Prodisc-C cervical artificial disc procedure.
