Implant type; Are you able to tell me what the differences are/are either of them better?

The main difference.
Hi Abbie, sorry I'm late to the answer. I just wonder if the implant manufacturer really is the main difference between the 2 surgeons. I feel like it's the equivalent of saying the main difference between a mouse and an elephant is that the elephant has 7 more thoracic vertebrae...you might be missing the bigger picture. I wonder if you should be making a comparison list and seeing if you can find any other differences. Cost, postop care, qualifications, experience, how long have they been using those implants, how much do they pay for the implants, why do they choose to use those implants...etc etc. Good luck.
Best wishes and good luck.
