From Joseph Patton

Hoping to afford a 3 level disc replacement using a device that has a 100% success rate...but is strangely NOT approved by the F.D.A.

To whom it may concern,

I am a Father of 2 who has been divorced from a 17 year marriage by a Woman who I thought was a Christian. She left us just when she was needed most. The reason she gave us was: "I've done everything right in my life...why should I have to suffer?"

Now, I am in a bad spot considering the Social Security Administration screwed me out of my initial claim (which was based on excellent work history)...just to immediately approve me on a new claim. (based on zero earnings)

Doctors are scared of me, and have relegated me to "pain management" which is an Opioid death sentence, if I'm not absolutely carefully against my body's need for more and more as I build a tolerance to it.

Of the 14 different Doctors I've seen, only 2 have actually wanted to help. They advise that I receive a 3 level ADR (Artificial Disc Replacement) And that a 3 level fusion would be a catastrophic mistake.

Which is a conundrum in that there is no device on the market that is approved by the FDA to address a 3 level issue.I have exhausted all options of research in the attempt of finding a solution, to the extent that I was able to get onto contact with the Wyoming Senator Dr. John Barrasso, who in turn gave me a contact at the F.D.A. in the attempt at getting what's known as a "Compassionate Use Criteria" or "Emergency Use Authorization" to which I have had no response sadly.

If I had the money, I could go to Jamaica to have Dr. Kingsley Chin do the surgery utilizing the Freedom Lumbar Disc, which he was instrumental in inventing. I have spoken with him, and have shown him my MRI's...He advised a 3 level replacement.

I do anticipate the Axiomed Freedom Lumbar Disc to become available in the U.S. once it has been approved by the F.D.A. although there is no telling when that may occur...I have been holding onto that hope since 2017.

I would be a great investment considering I am in excellent shape, and have tried really hard to maintain a low B.M.I. I have always been a person who strives to be counted in the asset column of American citizenry, and I believe the greatest thing I could accomplish on Earth, is to be a great Dad.

I really only want to stop being a burden on society, and to get some semblance of my life back...and am trying so hard to stay out of a wheelchair.

Any help would be so appreciated!


Best regards,

Joe Patton
