Hi!! I just stumbled across your site during my research of condylr surgery options and really appreciate you sharing your story! I’m wondering if you posted anything about what insurance you used please? I’m searching now during open enrollment and am having a very hard time find anyone that covers these surgeries. Thank you kindly for your help <3
