How can I convince my insurance company to approve an artificial disc replacement?

Question Details:

I am 39 years old. I am scheduled for cervical and lumbar surgery. The insurance company is denying my pre-certification due to the fact my neurosurgeon stated artificial disc replacement is the best for my condition. To the insurance artificial disc replacement is investigational. I do not want fusion. I want my mobility and I do not want to have surgery in 3 or 4 years due to the fusion damaging my other vertebraes. What can I do?
